The passion and the love for the land forms the foundation
of our country’s agricultural legacy.
Making the most of the land, yesterday,
today and for generations to come.
We are proud to connect farmers to their land,
helping provide the finest produce and fibre to the world.
Our farmers and station owners produce some of the finest food and fibre in the world. Whatever you produce, everyone at John Deere is committed to helping you make the most of your operation. That’s why we share The Colours of Your Land; a collection of short videos that capture the essence of what it means to be a farmer - true grit, family and doing what you love.
