Ives - Pelz Farm Complex

CLT's Ives and Pelz farm complex (177 acres) appear in these aerial images as an oasis amidst the orderly placement of some of Cheshire's finer subdivisions. Other nearby agricultural properties (Manke & Papandrea) persist. The photos were taken March 21, 2007 by Ev Cassagneres-Bluebird Aerial Photography.

Under a cover of a six inch snowfall, aerial photographer Ev Cassagneres captures details of Ives and Pelz farms rarely seen by many of us.

Ives / Pelz Farm Complex

The Quinnipiac meanders along the western boundaries of Ives & Pelz Farm. Cheshire Street bisects the Ives Farm property. The east side is buttressed north and south by subdivisions. East Johnson Avenue intersects Cheshire St. at top of photo.

This photo was taken as the plane approached the property east to west. The corridor at the bottom of the photo is a power line ROW that is within the eastern boundary of the farm. This picture reveals the great extent of forest thriving on the property. The six snow covered fields comprise the 177 acre Ives & Pelz agricultural complex. The river defines the western boundaries and subdivisions more or less detail the eastern, northern and southern boundaries.
