Having decided to quit farming and move into town, we have commissioned Art Smith Auctioneers to conduct a live on site Public Auction to sell the listed items. We would appreciate you considering attending our auction and thank you in advance for your time. Very best regards, Fred & Valerie Gave

NOTE: The farm has been in the family for nearly 50 years. Most all the tractors and farm equipment were purchased new and well cared for. Most all the equipment was stored inside, except when the pole barn was full of dried shelled corn in the fall for a month or so. Other barns kept the tractors, combine and other items out of the weather all year. Equipment is ready to go to work for you. Some items are from past generations. Make plans to be in NE Kent Co. on March 29 @ 10:00 AM for the start of this large farm close-out Auction.

Several wagon loads of farm miscellaneous & equipment parts selling at 10:00AM.

Tractors, steam engines and equipment selling about 12 NOON.

For your convenience we will have a lunch wagon, port-a-jons, wash up station and some off street parking, weather condition allowing.

Loader tractor available Auction day.

Pre-auction inspection and registration will be Friday March 28th from 4-6PM.
