It's a sad day for the Madonia group of Plant City.
They were one of the largest tomato growers in the state
of Florida, but the family fell into hardship and filed bankruptcy.
They were forced to sell the Red Rose Inn in Plant City,
thousands of acres of land and countless packing houses.
On Wednesday, their assets are being sold in a public
auction in Mulberry. Scores of tractors, forklifts, trucks, sprayers even golf
carts are being sold. About a thousand items are up for sale.
The auction begins at 9 a.m. For more information, visit www.weeksauction.com
