Frecon Fruit Farms Inc. is a 75-acre farm in Boyertown, PA, that produces a wide variety of fruit. They sell to farmers markets, small retailers, local schools, hospitals, food banks, and The FruitGuys.
They received a $1,991 grant to help complete a deer fencing project that will help reduce damage to their orchards from the growing population of white-tailed deer in their area. They completed their project in early March. Owner Steve Frecon told us, “the fence has been 100% successful in keeping deer out of the orchard. We have no presence of deer in the orchard, no fecal matter from deer, and our trees are growing much healthier without the deer eating them.”
