The Fall All-Day Auction will be held on Sunday (note that All-Day Auctions fall on Sundays, not Saturdays!), October 3, 2021.
To ease back into operations and reduce crowding, there will be no Tag Sale. Only livestock and live plants will be auctioned, no equipment or dry goods, and there will be no raffle. The total number of auction items will belimited to 500. Registration will start at 11 am and the auction at 12 pm with a hard stop at 5 pm. All-Day Auctions are complicated affairs to organize and run, and we are sorely out of practice. Hopefully these modifications will help us have a successful auction.
