Old-Time Farm and Antique Auction

Pioneer Village is one aspect of the Indiana State Fair that makes it unique among other state fairs. Fairgoers can take a trip back in time and view antique tractors, participate in old-time farm chores, enjoy down-home music and entertainment and more.

Jim Beaty with the Purdue Agronomy Center for Research and Education helped oversee the Old-time Farm and Antique Auction, which takes place today. He said the money from the donated items that are auctioned goes directly to the Pioneer Village Restoration Fund, which helps "restore the most precious artifacts." The fund also receives about 10 percent of the proceeds from the consignment items that are auctioned.

  1. Hi there! great stuff, glad to drop by your page and found these very interesting and informative. Thanks for sharing, keep it up!
    The collecting of antique furniture is a particularly popular area of antiques due to the practical characteristics of these antiques, as well as the value. Many collectors use the pieces in their homes, and also care for them with the hope that they will hold their value or possibly appreciate in value over time. In today’s highly competitive market for fine art and antiques Kaminski Auctions offers its customers with bicoastal services and marketing. We serve the east coast at our two Beverly, MA locations and serve the west coast with offices in Beverly Hills and San Diego, California.
