An auction of the remaining greenhouse equipment and vehicles will be held September 8.  The 66-acre property is slated for Funk's Farm Village, a mixed-use retirement community.  Owner Fred Funk and developer John Hogan indicate that the farm market should be back in some smaller form once the retirement community is built.
