Learn more about TomatoCulture
Peter Sinanian, owner and operator of TomatoCulture in Albuquerque, has been growing heirloom tomatoes following sustainable gardening practices for over 20 years. Of his tomatoes Peter says, “Heirloom tomatoes fuel our passion and dedication; but they also symbolize a more authentic, soulful way to live our lives.” This philosophy has guided Peter on his path from learning farming skills as a volunteer at Seeds for Learning Community Farm in Philadelphia, to the evolution of TomatoCulture beginning in his suburban backyard.
Peter moved from Pennsylvania to Albuquerque in 2011 with his wife and two children and grew TomatoCulture into a small farm. He has taken his expertise in marketing and business development and turned that towards growing and selling high quality, unique, heirloom tomato varieties in the Albuquerque area. Peter has a passion for good tomatoes, sustainable farming practices, and good business in Albuquerque.
