Notes

Van was an exceptional person! He was a self made man and farmer his entire life. He was fun loving and had a quick wit. Along with his love for farming, was his love for early tractors. He didn't buy the common models, but focused on the rare, the unusual and the low production tractors we all seek. He kept them in a beautiful showroom building and surrounded himself with things and artifacts from his lifetime of farming. Not only is his tractor collection astounding, his care for his like new modern equipment, cars and truck are fantastic! Join us for the open house and tour his collection and then bid from the comfort of your own home on your schedule!
