Unwanted Guests!

June 12, 2010

Upon making an unannounced entrance to the hops meadow, we encountered some uninvited guests.

Apparently, hops are considered a delicacy by the deer residing on our farm, since there is plenty of corn and greenery to eat.

Since firearms season is still 5 months away, we needed to apply a barrier method to keep the deer out of the hops.

I constructed 4 ft tall cages to place over the hops. My daughter, Laura helped although she is not pictured here.

Gina (our Black lab) supervised.
