This one-of-a-kind guide describes the history of John Deere. When the founder and blacksmith John Deere hammered out his first plow from a broken sawmill blade in 1837, he was responding to a need, and in the process creating enormous opportunity not just for himself, but for every farmer working the soil in those early days of settling America.
In the 179 years since that first moldboard, Deere & Co. has grown into a global corporation, with annual revenues approaching $40 billion. As the company looked to make more and better products to aid farmers and increase productivity, it took more than a few twists and turns, pursuing avenues we don’t often think of as Green – as in John Deere Green.
Inside you’ll find articles on the first John Deere tractors (Froelich and Dain), the Velie influence, Model E farm engines, and so much more.
