Farm Dispersal Sales



Upon Kind Instructions from The Executors & Administrators of Messrs H Tooby & Sons

At The Upper Venn Farm, Avenbury, Bromyard, Herefordshire, HR7 4LB



Exceptional Sale at The Upper Venn Farm

Brightwells and Sunderlands were kindly instructed by the Executors & Administrators of Messrs H Tooby & Sons to undertake a Dispersal Sale at The Upper Venn Farm on Saturday 27th April 2019.  The Tooby Family came to the Upper Venn in the 1930’s and in 1967 purchased the farm as sitting tenants.  Over the years a vast amount of equipment had been assembled but very little had ever left the premises.  The sale gave the opportunity to buy tractors from the vintage, classic and modern period together with similar aged machinery and implements together with some very rare items which brought general appeal to a wide body of purchasers.  We believe that this was probably one of the last farm sales of this type that we will probably ever undertake as it was one of the last really “old fashioned” farm sales with equipment from the past and modern times and some lovely examples of country farmhouse furniture.
