History of Summit City Farms
Summit City Farms is approaching 100 years of producing premium fruit and a variety of other crops.
Begun in 1922 by Italian immigrants, Gaetano DeEugenio and his wife Pasqueta, the farm started with the acquisition of 7.5 acres on University Boulevard in the Ridge section of Glassboro, NJ. Apples, asparagus, grape, mushrooms, and peaches were among the early crops. Gaetano’s three sons: Anthony, Joseph, and Lewis Sr. expanded the farm to 150 acres in the 1950’s. After the Johnson-Kosygin Summit In 1967, the name Summit City Farms was added. In the early 1990’s, Joseph left to pursue other interests with Anthony and Lewis Sr. acquiring his share. In the late 1990’s, Anthony retired with Lewis Jr. assuming his share of the farm. Under the ownership of Lewis Sr. and Lewis Jr. and their wives, Alyse and Leila, the farm expanded to approximately 500 acres.
