Bremen Farmers Produce Auction (LOVE OHIO)

MQTlogoa Just a short drive from Lancaster,Ohio you can get all the produce you want/need for the “right” price.



An Amish man, Dan Gingerich is the founder of the auction, which takes place in a building on his property. Some of the produce offered for sale comes from his fields. He’s been dreaming for a dozen years about making the farmers’ auction a reality. READ MORE

Give a man bread and he will eat for a day. Teach him how to plow and he will feed his family for the rest of his life.



It takes both rain and sunshine to make the garden grow. If you want a place in the sun, you will have to expect some blisters.



Shall I not have intelligence with the earth? Am I not partly leaves and vegetable mould myself. -  Henry David Thoreau  or.. This cabbage, these carrots, these potatoes, these onions ... will soon become me.  Such a tasty fact!




Happiness is like jam; it’s almost impossible to spread it around without getting some on yourself.



By the time most folks get to greener pastures, they can’t climb the fence.(tell me about it)



Don’t hurry, don’t worry, do your best, leave the rest!


Auction chant (also known as "bid calling", "the auction cry", "the cattle rattle", or simply "Auctioneering") is a rhythmic repetition of numbers and "filler words" spoken by an auctioneer in the process of conducting an Auction. READ MORE

DSC_0022 Trying to understand all that “auction chant” made me hungry so I had a cheeseburger with all the fixins. Thanks Wayne you do great work..



Sweet corn anyone???


Harvest comes not every day. Carpe diem and we will see you at the “auction”

OLDMAN Well, I didn’t buy any produce today but I may return on Friday and ‘test the waters”  Some say if you keep waiting for the right time, you may never begin. LOL… Have a great day

Beautiful produce! I've been to auctions, but not for food!

Auction for food? That means you will have to buy a lot if you bid for them, right?

What a cool auction! A food auction is new to me, but why not? Love the photos, especially the horses.. This would be a cute post for my critter party, if you would like to link it up! Happy weekend!
