Five generations of family history go under auction hammer

HUNDREDS of visitors turned out to bid farewell to a farming family's five-generation legacy, and to claim their piece of the pie at auction.

For over 120 years, the Zischke's have grown crops and cultivated their familial farmland, but this time is at its end, following the sale of their Glenore Grove property to Rugby Farms.

The family's remaining equipment, vehicles, and supplies were sold off at a massive auction on Saturday, presided over by Stariha Auctions.
