It was recently written that “The Old Feed Mill Auction is one of the true country auctions left in New Jersey, selling estates from far and wide. It is an ‘undiscovered gem’ in the antiques world, complete with corny jokes, a hot dog stand, and the experienced banter of a country auctioneer.”

 

Auctions most Friday nights, except for weddings, funerals,

or time to pick berries at the farm.

 

No way beats the Auction method of personal property liquidation.
