David Koon sends the photo of the crowd gathered at Breezy Meadows, the Jennings Osborne family farm on Kanis Road, where an auction of that property and tons of gear, including his extensive barbecuing setup (a kingsize Razorback hog smoker among the goods), is underway.
The farm with pond, outbuildings and fountain on almost 11 acres sold for $847,000. The house has more than 6,000 square feet.
Bubba Wood, a friend who helped organize the sale, said, "We were hoping for a million, but that was good." Four acres of parking were filled with vehicles from bidders. About 300 people registered to bid.
