Danny Barker Auctioneer / Broker
Greenup Branch Office
Thank you for taking a look at us at buyafarm.com.
I’m Danny and I grew up on a grain farm in Shelbyville IL. Since my legs were almost long enough to reach the clutch pedal, I have been driving tractors and farming. After graduating from college, I came back to the family farm full time. Farming has never been considered a job to me but a passion in my life for taking care of the land.
With my passion for agriculture, I received my Associate's Degree in Agricultural Production and Management from Lake Land College in 2007. I then transferred to Southern Illinois University-Carbondale where I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Agriculture Systems and Technology with a minor in Agriculture Business in 2009.
Throughout the summer you can find my family and I at various county fairs competing with the Illinois Tractor Pulling Association. If I’m not tractor pulling, you can find me tinkering with my old antique tractors.
Following in my Father’s footsteps, I received my auctioneer’s license from Missouri Auction School in 2009. I am a second generation auctioneer specializing in farm equipment and real estate. To go with my auctioneer license, I acquired my real estate broker’s license in 2015. I am currently licensed to sell real estate and auction in the State of Illinois.
Being a full-time farmer and owning real estate myself, I fully understand the emotional roller coaster to buying and selling real estate. I will be there with you every step of the way, and treat you as I would want to be treated in the same situation.
