Stamp Farms Land, Equipment to Hit the Auction Block

A land auction, which includes 2,200 acres of farmland in 26 parcels, a large shop and storage building and three homes on smaller acreage, will be held March 27 at noon in Lawton, Mich.

The auction, a result of Mike Stamp and Stamp Farms, LLC declaring bankruptcy in November, will be held at the Lawton Community Center, 646 North Nursery Street, Lawton, MI 49065. Miedema Auctioneering, Inc. was appointed by the secured creditors and trustees to host the auction. The properties for sale were not part of the bulk sale to Boersen Farms, Inc.

The land for sale is located in Cass and Van Buren counties. Of the 2,200 acres for sale, 1,500 acres are center-pivot irrigated. For information about the land, including soil types for each property, and a bidder’s packet, call (800) 527-8243. Bidder registration will begin at 11 a.m. the day of the auction. Internet and phone bidding will be available, but bidders must pre-register by 3 p.m. March 25. Interested individuals should call (800) 527-8243 and ask for Donna.

  What happened to all the shop tools?

  Probably weren't many. Those kind of people don't actually work on stuff. They just put up a big shop to get a picture in Farm Journal, then park a big tractor and shinny new combine in for when they have people over for a seed corn meeting or an occasional graduation party.
