This endeavor preserves in images the culture, work ethic and the people that still labor in a manner as they have for many generations in Orange County, New York. Much of this is rapidly disappearing as farms turn into housing developments and malls. It is unique in that it focuses more on the people themselves rather than similar projects that have just depicted the buildings and landscapes of old Orange County. This project includes both rural and urban activities. It is also distinctive in that a variety of avocations and skills are depicted. It includes images from Ace Farm in Monroe, Bellvale Farms in Warwick, Brotherhood Winery in Washingtonville, Monroe Shoe Repair in Monroe, Quaker Creek Store in Goshen, Roe's Orchards in Chester and Scheuermann Farms in Warwick. My intent is to encourage the general public to learn our common local history, as it is still being practiced today.
