Amish community pours into SoKY: turnout unprecedented for 38th Annual ‘Amish Auction’

SCOTTSVILLE, Ky. –  People from across the U.S. flooded Allen County this past Saturday for the Amish-run 38th Annual Southern Kentucky Horse Drawn Machinery Consignment Auction.

Despite virtually zero media promotion, thousands both within and outside of the Amish community poured into Scottsville to participate in the auction rings.

Buyers trudged through the mud to bid on all kinds of horse-drawn machinery, shop equipment, farm animals, and much more.

Long-time attendee Titus Glick said, “When I first came 15 years ago, there were only four auctioneers at the same time. Now, there are people from 20-something states. And so people bring and come here to buy from all over the U.S.”

If you want a piece of the bidding next year, go ahead and mark your calendars same time and place next year.
