Family Farm in Mardela Springs Hosts Fundraiser

Posted: Apr 15, 2018 3:20 PM Updated:

DELMAR, Md.- The Harcum family's historic Beechnut Farm in Mardela Springs has been around for more than 300 years and it's now facing some serious financial problems.

Sunday afternoon, the family who runs the farm hosted a fundraiser to help pay some of the farm's debt.

Delmar's VFW was a packed house Sunday afternoon as people entered one by one to indulge in their Sunday super. 

The family says $300,000 is needed to save the farm. Rebecca Harcum helps run the farm and says some the farm's land is in the process of being sold and she doesn't want to see anymore land go.

"The goal for today is just to raise a little bit of money for the campaign and connect with the people who have already donated," she said.
