Welcome to Methven Harvesting

Experienced owner / operated harvesting contractor located in Mid Canterbury

Methven contractors Millan Bungard and Chris Woods formed Methven Havesting in 2013 to complement their respective drilling and ploughing / cultivation businesses.

We now operate two Claas Lexion combine harvesters (670 & 580) with laser pilot autosteer and an APS Threshing system. The harvesters operate with 7.5m grain fronts and Swathmaster 9 belt grass seed pickups.

We can provide on farm cartage with our truck, tractors/trailers and augers. Long distance can be arranged.

While our yard is located in Methven, we operate throughout the Ashburton District – from the foothills to the sea, and between the Rakaia & Rangitata Rivers.

Our clients range from farmers who have done the maths and can’t justify a modern reliable header of their own, through to farms where breakdowns, other farming commitments, or the weather has caused delays and they need a hand.
