The large white building near the center of the picture is a fairly new cold storage area for storing both totes of apples
and pears fresh from the orchard and completed boxes of fruit packed by the expert crew at Fix Brothers Fruit Farm. At the top of the picture is one of the many irrigation ponds at the farm. Just look at those rows of fruit trees. They sure look awesome when viewed from above.
This view is looking toward the north-west. Fix Brothers Fruit Farm is in the center of the picture and at the top is the Hudson River. The bridge is the Rip Van Winkle bridge. Right near the exit at the eastern end of the bridge is Olana, the estate of Frederick Church, now a New York State historical site.
This view is looking toward the north.
Toward the top of the picture, near the irrigation pond, are many new plantings of high production per acre dwarf trees. This low height provides for easier harvesting of the fruit (no ladders to climb) and will also be the site for pick-your-own apples (more on that later). There is a mile of what is called deer fence surrounding a lot of the fruit. Yes, the whitetail deer of New York like the fruit too and can do quite a bit of damage if left unchecked.
