Arbor Acres

with 3 comments

My photo assignment explained this project so well, I figured I would just copy and paste:

“The town of Glastonbury owns the former Arbor Acres Farm, where modern chicken was invented. The town is demolishing the buildings to make more open space. Story is about this, and about the history of the farm and its owner, Henry Saglio, a poultry giant who died in 2003. Two-thirds of all chickens eaten in the USA were descended from Arbor Acres birds. No activity. We are looking for moody and evocative pictures of the old place — including a couple of large chicken coop buildings.”
