Having decided to move to Portland, MI to be near family, we have listed our hobby farm and home of 30 years with a real estate company. We have commissioned Art Smith Auctioneers to conduct a Live On-site Public Auction to sell our tractor, farm equipment, shop tools, fire wood, antiques, collectibles and farm primitives. We would like to invite you to our Thursday afternoon Auction and thank you in advance for your consideration and time.


Roger & Sandra Trierweiler

NOTE: Roger retired from General Motors in 1989 after 30 years of service.Sandra worked as a school bus driver, dog groomer and also worked at the Greenville Hospital. They both have enjoyed the “country” lifestyle in their retirement, but now want to spend more time with the grandkids and family in Portland.  The John Deere tractor has low hours and Roger is the second owner, it has been used very little. The farm equipment will fit nicely into anyone’s small farming operation. Large quantity of quality fire wood, cut, split and drying in the barn. Make plans to be just east of Trufant on Thursday afternoon June 30 at 3:00PM for the start of this country auction.

For your convenience we will have a port-a-jon, lunch wagon and wash-up station.
