18th Annual Casey County Benefit Auction!

Don't forget that this Saturday––March 31st––will be the annual Casey County rite of Spring: the Benefit Consignment Auction run by the county's Old Order Mennonite community. It will be held in the usual spot at the junction of Hwy 127 and 510, from 9am-5pm.

There are flats of plants, larger landscape plants, lots of baked items (for sale), produce items (for sale), delicious cooked chicken and secret-recipe barbecue sauce, ice cream, snacks and all manner of livestock and assorted items at auction.

Every year there is something different but you can always count on finding something delicious or useful to take home with you. And all proceeds benefit certain charitable organizations and members in the Mennonite community with medical need.

See you at the auction!

Homemade pies of all sizes are always at the well-stocked (and affordable) bake sale!
Homemade preserves!

There is always a quilt auction of vintage and newer quilts
at very affordable prices. We admired these older ones a few years ago.

There are livestock available at auction including cattle, chickens, hogs and other fowl.

It's Time for the Casey County Produce Auction!

Just a note that the Casey County Produce Auction will begin its regular 2012 auction season on Wednesday, April 4 at their location on South Fork Creek in Liberty, Kentucky. Here you can buy local Casey County produce, eggs, plants and flowers at their freshest availability and often at wholesale prices (or even less and sometimes more: it's an auction, after all).

Click here for a full 2012 schedule of regular plant, flower and produce auctions, as well as special auctions, held mostly three times a week from April through mid-October.
Stay tuned for auction highlights throughout the season! And if you ever want a market report of how specific items sold, you can always call 1-606-787-0570 for a recorded message of the last auction results.

And remember that everyone in the region is welcome to sell their locally grown produce, eggs and plants (no matter how small the volume). If you wish to sell, contact Milton Brubacker or Paul Hoover at 1-606-787-5158 for particulars.

See you at the auction!
