100 Years of History

Summit City Farms is approaching 100 years of producing premium fruit and vegetables.

Founded 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. Read on to learn more about the history of Summit City and the family that established it in Glassboro, New Jersey.

History of Summit City Farms

 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. 

Ted Mlinar, an Ohio State graduate, joined as field manager in 1991. Also, Summit City Farms joined the Iconic Jersey Fruit Cooperative: which has commercially marketed fruit up to the present. As president of the Jersey Fruit Coop, Lewis Jr had a vision of a large automated central fruit packing facility. In the mid 1990’s, along with some fellow Jersey Fruit Growers, Eastern Propak, LLC was created and continues operational on Ellis Mill Road in Glassboro packing, storing and restyling commodities both local and international.
