The Darlington Farmers Auction Mart acted upon the kind instruction of Mr Ian Morgan to carry out a complete dispersal sale of combine harvester, tractors and farm machinery at Prospect Farm, Merrybent on Friday 17th March 2023.
A fabulous crowd gathered to witness this sale of truly outstandingly presented and maintained modern farm equipment, complimented by live internet bidding the trade proved exceptional throughout. Such was the high quality of this wonderful collection the Prospect Farm machinery certainly made its own luck, however being held on St Patrick’s day even the weather gods favoured us and a dry day amidst rain across the region proved to be the icing on the cake.
Immense credit must go to Mr Morgan and his staff for the unrivalled maintenance and cleanliness of their farming operation; little wonder then that we welcomed buyers from as far afield as Inverurie and Pontefract plus a multitude of familiar local faces, neighbours, and friends of the much-respected Morgan family.
A thoroughly enjoyable and successful sale day was held, with much of the equipment including the combine and three tractors now leaving Prospect Farm for the first time since new we have every faith that the purchasers will be more than satisfied.
All at DfAM heartily wish the family and staff the very best of luck for their next chapter. Please see below a list of the highlights.
