The fruit grader pictured was originally purchased for the Soldier Settlement packing shed at Bullecourt which was established in 1934. After it had served it's time there it was then purchased by Fred Lancaster for use on the "Busy Bee Orchard". After the sale of the Busy Bee Fred had used it at Broadwater where he and his friend Joe Thompson grew tomatoes and other vegetables for a short period. The grader then went to Bob Cook at Severnlea who later donated it to the Stanthorpe Museum. Tom Lancaster, Fred's oldest son who had used the grader previously on the Busy Bee restored it on a reduced scale so that visitors to the museum could understand how it was used.
