Due to health issues, we have decided to retire from hobby farming and will have Art Smith Auctioneers conduct a live public auction here at our farm. We invite all to attend and thank you in advance for your time and consideration.

Thank you, Richard & Lois Spedowski

NOTE: Richard & Lois have spent nearly 60 years on the farm and loved the farm life. They enjoyed the Oliver line and tractor shows. Richard retired from Big Rapids School District and Lois worked at the Big Rapids Hospital. The tractors are in nice condition and always kept in the barn. The JD 1010 and Oliver 1600 are exceptionally clean and ready for the shows or parades this summer. Make plans to be just east of Big Rapids on Sat. June 4th @ 10:00AM for the start of this Auction.
