Beef masters, Rutgers, Sioux and if you are looking for a paste tomato, the SAN Marzano are all good higher acid tomatoes. They should do well in your zone.

Welcome to the forum  !
I am glad you have joined us and I look forward to learning about ( and hopefully seeing lots of pictures of) your garden.

How big of a plot do you have to grow in?
Are you using raised beds or field growing?

I actually have a small field garden. Last year was my first garden in several years and I actually produced quite a bit from it. As I become more efficient I hope to grow more vegetables and certainly look forward to learning a lot more from this forum. I have  a spring fed pond for water source and hope to get water supplied to my garden area soon. I have approximately 700' of piping to run so it might be a while before I can get it there. struggling a bit as to what size pipe I need to run to get correct flow and pressure but hopefully I can get it soon.
