Deer Food and Feeding Deer
Like us, white-tailed deer can be picky eaters. While they will eat almost anything from home gardens and small-scale farms, they prefer sweet-tasting plants. Here are favorite foods for deer:
Throughout spring and summer, deer will enjoy eating a variety of fruits and vegetables including apples, cherries, grapes, peas and carrots.
Some growers like having deer around yards; but others prefer that the deer travel elsewhere for food. Building a deer fence can keep the peace between neighbors that have different options about feeding deer.
Remember, deer are creatures of habit; and they will keep coming back to landscapes if they know that they will be well-fed there.
