The 2020 Great Tomato Tasting, originally scheduled for Aug. 26, has been cancelled.

The Snyder Research and Extension Farm located near Pittstown, NJ, is the Rutgers University Center for Sustainable Agriculture.

Snyder Farm initiates and disseminates research applicable to the production of a variety of food and fiber products including grain crops, tree and small fruits, turfgrass, and ornamentals. The farm's 390 acres provide a valuable capacity for research of soil and climate conditions and crops of northern New Jersey.

Education and community service were defining ideals for Clifford and Melda Snyder. Snyder Farm continues their work through home lawn, garden, and orchard programs; on-farm internship opportunities; and hunger relief efforts
