The Corn Picker book is still in the works, for March 2011.
We are Bob and Phyllis Johnson and we are collecting
information about corn pickers, and we hope
that you can send us stories and photographs to share with other enthusiasts. Stories, pictures, and other information can be sent to: MrCornPicker@aol.com.
Collectors of other kinds of equipment - from tractors
to combines, plows to wagons - have all kinds of books in which to look for
What are your memories?
Did a family member or neighbor
ever use a picker?
For every make and model picker, we hope to include personal stories about farmers who worked with them.
Experiences - good and bad
A DVD may be in our future
Videos of corn pickers working in the field and factory films and filmstrips could be combined and preserved for everyone to share.
A production company is hoping to work with us on this project, too, if anyone is interested, and if footage can be found.
