We have a member who has a Massey-Harris combine he would be willing to donate.  It’s not one of the models listed.
His name is Ian Bunbury and his e-mail is ianbunbury at gmail.com if Creston would like to contact him for further information.

Subject: [BCMA] Looking for a small combine

Hi, everyone, 

A local farming family is working hard to convert their farm operations to be fossil-fuel-free, and are looking for a small tow-behind combine harvesters that their solar-powered tractor can power and tow. Specifically, Allis Chalmers All Crop 60 or 66, or a John Deere 12A, from 1948-1970. They are confident they can "fix up anything," but are hoping to find one that isn't totally wrecked.

I'm sending this out in hopes someone out there in Museum-land might have an extra one? Maybe one you're planning to deaccession? Or one you've been offered but turned down? Maybe one that's growing weeds in your own backyard? Mouldering away in your neighbour's barn? Or possibly something similar that might work? if that's the case, let me know and I'll pass the information on to Drew and Joanne to see if their tractor can handle it.

I have no idea what their budget might be, but if there is a price attached let me know and I'll pass it along. They have been looking all over Canada, so I'm sure travelling to get it will not be a problem. It would mean the combine goes into private hands, but on the flipside, Drew and Joanne do a lot of demonstrations of their sustainable/eco-friendly farming practices, and the Creston Museum is among the community partners they work with...

Thanks for any tips you can offer!
