Haley Auctions and Realty is honored to offer the Udell Wells farm at public auction on April 26th, 2014 at 10:00AM. Mr. Wells’ roots run deep in the Green Ridge community, as he has lived on his farm at Highland Lick Rd since 1970. The farm offers approximately 37 acres of highly productive cropland, woods, ponds, and excellent hunting, and two homes. We will be selling this property in three tracts. Crop farmers should take notice of the potential to expand their farming operation with this property. It is also the ideal size for produce farmers who would like to start up in the business or grow their business. Be sure to mark your calendars for this great auction. We look forward to seeing you there!

Tract 1: This beautiful tract is 1.73 acres and is improved with a country home, large shade trees, shed, and pond. This home would be great for a smaller family or for an investment property. This tract is surrounded by open fields and beautiful scenery, making it a perfect building lot. Builders should take notice of the potential this 1.73 acre tract holds.

Tract 2: Farmers take a look! Tract two contains 33.53 acres of great cropland and woods that would be a great addition or startup for any farming family. Row-crop farmers will enjoy the lay of the land on this tract. The relatively flat fields will allow the farmer to get his work done quickly and efficiently.  This tract is also the perfect size for a produce farming operation. Whether you are just starting up or you are looking to expand your operation, look no further than Tract 2.

Tract 3: This tract consists of an approximately 1,800 sq. foot home that has been very well-kept. This home offers three bedrooms and two bathrooms and is sitting on a beautiful .79 acre lot. If you are looking for a nice home that is outside of town, this is the place for you!

FREELAND CDJR HOSTS TEST DRIVE EVENT FOR LOGAN CO. FFA TO RAISE $10,000
Freeland CDJR to host test drive event to raise money for the Logan County Future Farmers of America.
Russellville, Ky. – Freeland Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram will be hosting a Test Drive Event on Saturday, April 26 from 10:00 a.m.–7:00 p.m. that will benefit the Logan County FFA.
General Manager, Nick Rice provided us the details for the event.
Ram has offered to donate $20 for every test drive of a Ram truck to the local FFA chapter associated with the dealership. As part of the contest, Freeland CDJR has agreed to cover half of the costs with Ram in order to reach the dealership and Logan Co. FFA’s goal of 500 test drives, raising a total of $10,000.
“Across the nation, Ram selected 150 dealerships to compete in this event,” said Rice. “The top five dealerships with the most test drives will win a free Easton Corbin concert on site at the dealership.”
When speaking with Brian Estes, FFA Faculty Advisor at Logan County High School, he told us he’s extremely excited about this partnership.
“We’ve now been given the opportunity the raise a large sum of money that will benefit the Chapter in a multitude of ways,” said Estes. “We’re very excited for this event and grateful to be the participating chapter with Ram and Freeland CDJR.”
Estes tells us the funds raised by the event will go to the purchase of a Concession Trailer, Alumni Senior Scholarships and the Logan Co. FFA Chapter.
The FFA will also be providing free lunch to the first 500 test drives of the day.
Freeland CDJR will have entertainment on site, food cooking on the grill, music by WRUS and DJ entertainment by Clay Bilyeu.
“It’s going to be a fun day on the lot and it’ll all go to a great cause,” said Rice. “I really want to blow these other dealerships out of the water. I want us to raise the most money for our FFA and be able to bring Easton Corbin to Russellville.”
All you have to do is come to the dealership, fill out a form to take a test drive and drive with one of our friendly employees – it’s that simple.
