More than pretty pictures. How fun Cerebrun photos give serious glimpses about land use in York County, Pa.
This is just a striking photo by York, Pa., Daily Record/Sunday News’ photographer Jason Plotkin. Striking because it shows York County’s still-rich agricultural land. And informative because it indicates yet another alt-use of this land, apart from farming. The use of farmland for purposes other than traditional agricultural work is a growing trend in York County. This was the scene of the recent Cerebrun on Rexroth Farms, north of York, that taxed the body and mind. See a ydr.com photo gallery of that day: Cerebrun. Also of interest: Maize Quest in southeastern York County is another agricultural land alt-use.
Here’s another thought-provoking scene from Cerebrun in Conewago Township. With those stacks as a backdrop, this photo reminds you that the idea of preservation of farmland in York County should always accompany discussions about its beauty.
