The first annual Union Fair Farm & Garden Equipment Auction. The Union Fair will be hosting its first ever auction Sunday Aug. 17, at 10 a.m. to buy or sell new or used farm and garden equipment.

Consigning items for the auction is easy. An application can be found on the Union Fair website, or contact Bruce Reinemann at 785-2978 or email him at to be sent one.

There is a 10 percent seller’s premium for items consigned, so if an item sells for $100, the seller will be paid $90. This will help cover the cost of the event. The focus of this auction is farm and garden tools and equipment, so no household items will be accepted. Full lists of guidelines are included in the application.
