Due to advancing age, we have decided on a MAJOR downsizing of our collections of tractors, equipment, farm primitives and toys & have chosen the Live Public Auction method to accomplish our goal. We have commissioned Art Smith Auctioneers to conduct the Auction and thank Ravenna Auction for the use of their auction yard. We would like to take this opportunity to also thank you in advance for your time, consideration, and support.

Very best regards, Jim & Ruth Ann Arends

NOTE: Jim & Ruth Ann operated a dairy farm for over 50 years, then raised beef and cash cropped for another 10 years. They traveled the country looking for rare and unusual tractors & farm equipment, then restored them & traveled some more to tractor shows in several states. Now it’s time to let others enjoy their collections. Everything always housed and taken care of. For your convenience everything will be moved to the Ravenna Auction grounds where there will be lots of off-street parking for your trucks & trailers. Auction will begin at 12PM with the toy collection then over to the tractors etc. If inclement weather, the toys can be sold indoors in the dairy arena. Make plans to be in Ravenna on Thursday May 23 at 12 NOON for the start of this fine Live Public Auction.
