History

When Colonel Redbeard was a little whipper snapper, he would attend auctions with his father. He loved to hear that “chant” that the Auctioneer made, tapping his toe and it would send Redbeard into a day dream about being up there someday himself. Col. Stan Perkins, first Auctioneer in the Michigan Hall of Fame said….”You can’t be a great Auctioneer with a pint in your pocket”. The Col. Redbeard follows that principle of temperance today along with principles of honesty, integrity, perseverance, and faith. Brent’s love of being an Auctioneer and a “Brother of the Hammer”, drives him to be an outstanding Auctioneer. The title “Colonel” is give to auctioneers’ from the days of the American Civil War. Colonel’s auctioned off war plunder to the highest bidders. Brent LaPonsey owned Good Ol’ Redbeard’s General store, he has now stepped away in order to follow his dream. His dream grew into reality, which caused one door to close, the store, and one door to open, Redbeard’s Auction Co. He wants to be among the Greats, and the Best of the Best! Hire Redbeard’s Auction Company for any & all your Auction Needs.

🐝 Meet the Pollinators & Enjoy Michigan’s Great Outdoors!

Who are the Pollinators?

🦋 Pollinators Need You & You Need Pollinators!

REDBEARD'S AUCTION COMPANY AUCTIONEER BRENT LAPONSEY FLINT MI MICHIGAN

Birds, bats, butterflies, moths, flies, beetles, wasps, small mammals, and most importantly, bees are pollinators.

They visit flowers to drink nectar or feed off of pollen and transport pollen grains as they move from spot to spot. 

Pollinators are responsible for bringing us one out of every three bites of food.

What is Pollination?

🐞 Working to Bring Us Countless Fruits, Vegetables, & Nuts!

When a pollen grain moves from the anther (male part) of a flower to the stigma (female part), pollination happens. This is the first step in a process that produces seeds, fruits, and the next generation of plants. Pollinators travel from plant to plant carrying pollen on their bodies in a vital interaction that allows the transfer of genetic material critical to the reproductive system of flowering plants.
REDBEARD'S AUCTION COMPANY AUCTIONEER BRENT LAPONSEY FLINT MI MICHIGAN

Why are Pollinators so Important?

🦜 Pollinators Need You & You Need Pollinators!

REDBEARD'S AUCTION COMPANY AUCTIONEER BRENT LAPONSEY FLINT MI MICHIGAN
Somewhere between 75% & 95% of all flowering plants on the earth need help with pollination – they need pollinators. Pollinators provide pollination services to over 180,000 different plant species & more than 1200 crops. 1 out of every three bites of food you eat is there because of pollinators. Pollinators add 217 billion dollars to the global economy, & honey bees alone are responsible for between $1.2 and $5.4 billion in agricultural productivity in the USA.

Redbeard is Raising Money

🦇 To Design, Build & Stock New Pollination Areas!

Redbeard will use donations to build homes & habitats for Pollinators that need shelter & water supply. Please help to help the World 🌎!

Pollution, pesticides, toxic chemicals, disease, & careless people are all contributing to shrinking pollinator populations.

Spikehorn Ranch in Brent Creek, MI has received some great donations from caring people & we want to thank you for helping to reach the goal for this spring!
