Delaware County is nestled in the pastoral Catskill Mountains. The County is large, the size of Rhode Island, with a rich agricultural history that has helped us develop an incredible farm to table food scene and organizations that connect food to the urban centers direct from our farms.
While some may consider this area remote, we consider it unspoiled.
Our air is pure, our water is clean and our kids run free, because they can. While big box stores are a half an hour to an hour away (depending on where you are), our shops are run by families, people who will remember your name when you come through the door. Our housing stock is incredibly diverse and unique. A huge Victorian, a Green Revival or a farm house with a ton of acreage is less expensive than a studio apartment in a major city.
Best of all, our community is full of kind people. We say hello to each other when we pass on the street. We help each other and we would like to help you consider your relocation to Delaware County.
