After over 40 years of farming on this farm raising strawberries and produce, we have decided to retire, sell the farm and move. We have commissioned

Art Smith Auctioneers to conduct a Live On-site Public Auction to sell our tractors, farming tools, shop tools, van, irrigation equipment, guns, sporting items, antique, collectibles and farm primitives. We would really appreciate you considering attending our Thursday morning Auction and thank you in advance for your time.

Very best regards, Donald & Pat Cook

NOTE: This farm has been in the family for over 65 years with many items from past generations. Don and Pat are lifelong area residents and enjoyed a life time of country living, farming, hunting, trapping, fishing and enjoying the outdoors. This Live Auction reflects this lifestyle with the items that will be sold.

The tractors have always been well maintained and kept in the pole barn. Equipment is ready to go to work for you on your small farm. Many unique items from the produce & strawberry operation, antiques, collectibles and farm primitives. Also, a huge quantity of cut split hardwood fire wood, guns, traps, sporting collectibles, VERY nice wood boat etc. will make this Auction worth the effort to attend!

Make special plans to be just East of Eastmanville on 60th Ave. on Thursday morning, September 21 for the start of this most interesting Auction.

For your convenience we will have port-a-jons, lunch wagon, off street parking and loader tractor day of the auction.

TERMS: Cash or good check day of auction. Master Card or VISA with 5% service fee. (We subscribe to Pay-Tec, a NATIONAL CHECK COLLECTION COMPANY)
