(R) HUNTERDON'S AGRICULTURAL SCIENTIFIC DISCOVERIES AND INNOVATIONS
Hunterdon County has long been a leader in Agricultural research, science and technology.  If you followed our 2014 "300 Fun Facts About Hunterdon County", you'll remember that the first artificial insemination of a cow happened in Hunterdon and the first live shipment of chicks came from Hunterdon.  And let's not forget about the Deats Plow and all of the great work that is being done in Pittstown at the Snyder Research Farm.  Join County Historian John Kuhl for a brand new lecture and power point presentation on these topics and so much more.  John is a favorite of our lecture attendees, so make your reservation early!   Free; Reservations Required.  Refreshments available.  Tickets will be available in early July.  This is a companion lecture to a special event we are planning at the Snyder Research Farm (details to be announced).

(R - $) GREAT TOMATO TASTING EARLY BIRD SPECIAL
40 lucky people who grab our tickets will be able to enter the annual Great Tomato Tasting at the Clifford E. and Melda C. Snyder Research Farm early and receive a special lecture prior to the tasting event!  We meet at 2 pm to board 2 hay wagons which will take our group for a private tour of the Research Farm where you will hear the history of the 390 acre farm, the Snyders' amazing contributions to agriculture and their community, and Mrs. Snyder's amazing and generous donation to Rutgers University's Cook College.  Following the tour and talk, you are on your own to taste all of the fabulous tomatoes that are grown at the Research Farm as well as the other fruit and produce selections available.  The Great Tomato Tasting opens to the general public at 3 pm, so our early-bird arrival guarantees us the best parking and an early spot in the lines at the tables.  We shall be collecting the $7 entrance fee with your Eventbrite reservation in advance of the event to guarantee your reservation with our group.
Limited to 40 people.
NO money will be accepted until your reservation is confirmed.
