Like many producers, Harold “Ham” Keller left more than the family farm to his sons Ray and Max when he passed in 2007. Above, Max Keller follows family tradition as he parades his father’s 1958 Massey Harris 35 combine at the family farm just three miles south of Hunter where he farms with Ray. The 42 hp combine is equipped with a seven foot header and a 25 bushel grain bin. Ham was a collector, and enjoyed vintage farm implements, often showing them in parades in the area. The last time this Massey was out was in 2016 in celebration of the Hunter centennial. (Photo courtesy of Mitch Keller)
