A farm has taken to social media to express their anger after two trucks destroyed their hayfield.
The certified organic fruit and vegetable farm is located on the Saanich Peninsula.
In a post on Facebook, on December 29th, Longview Farm, said: “Last night, two trucks were stuck in our hayfield. The police were called.”
“The individuals were caught, and tow trucks had to come pull them out. It wasn’t until the light of day that the extent of the damage became fully visible.”
This, the post added, represents thousands of dollars in lost revenue and field maintenance and repairs. “It is a terrible example of ignorance and disrespect.”
“Please spread the word that this type of senseless “fun” is at a farmer’s expense.”
“It has far-reaching effects that make an already challenging industry harder to manage; this is a direct attack on farmers and their livelihood and needs to stop. It needs to stop now.” the social media post concluded.
