LEXINGTON, KY (February 24, 2005) When you have a farm, it just naturally follows that you have used farm equipment. If it’s time to upgrade, downsize, or simply clear the clutter, the Fayette County Farm Bureau can help.
On March 19, beginning at 9:30 am, the 22nd Annual Fayette County Farm Bureau Farm Equipment Consignment Auction will be held at the Kentucky Horse Park. (All tractors will be sold at 11 am.) Proceeds benefit the bureau’s Scholarship Program.
Serious farmers, gardeners, bargain hunters and friendly scavengers are invited to graze or hunt and peck through hundreds of pieces of equipment ranging from farming and landscaping to lawn and garden. The equipment has been compiled from area farmers, landscapers and retail stores and over a thousand interested buyers are expected to attend.
Designers and decorators might find an authentic farm objet d’art or that perfect piece of weathered material to complete a shabby chic, or garden, decorating project.
Auctioneers from Swinebroad-Denton will conduct the sale.
For more information on the Fayette County Farm Bureau Farm Equipment Consignment Auction or how to donate a piece of equipment for a 100% tax write-off (instead of letting sit in the middle of your field or take up space in your barn for the next ten years), contact Carrie Johnson at 859-253-0023. Equipment will be accepted March 17-18.
