Farm to hold fundraiser for tractor, deer damage
Common Ground Farm will host an evening of music and drinks at Hudson Valley Brewery in Beacon on Friday, March 1, from 8 to 11 p.m. to pay for a new Kubota tractor and a metal deer fence, among other improvements.
Tickets are $25 at store.commongroundfarm.org. Entry includes one drink, one raffle ticket for a chance to win a Common Ground Farm U-Pick Share, and music by The Wakies.
Sarah Simon, the farm’s director, said deer last year ate an estimated $3,000 of lettuce and $1,000 of kale and caused reduced yields on tomatoes, sweet potatoes, peppers, carrots and beets.
