Grand Gorge, Catskills

Delaware County is home to a thriving agricultural industry that dates back over 200 years. Many area farms are home to picturesque barns of all types and distinguishing characteristics, some still active while others are in a decades-long state of neglect. Whatever their state, in today’s fast paced world, these barns have perhaps taken on unintended meaning well beyond their original functional use, representing the slower era of yesteryear while continuing as iconic symbols of this country’s agricultural roots. The farm pictured here is characteristic of the pastoral beauty that can be found throughout Delaware County.
