Having sold the farm that I have spent most of my nearly 70 years on, I have decided to have Art Smith Auctioneers conduct an auction to sell my tractors, farm equipment and horse items. I would invite all to attend and do appreciate your time and consideration.

                                                                                    Allen Elzinga


NOTE: Folks, Mr. Elzinga is well known in the Byron Center area as a horsemen, farmer, and restorer of horse buggies and equipment. Most of the horse items are in restored condition and ready for you to enjoy. The tractors and farm equipment were used on this small farm and always kept in the shed.
