"This was ordered for my John Deere loving husband. He has always wanted to go back to Moline to see how they are made, but of course that costs a lot of money. This way he could learn what he wanted, without the cost. He absolutely loved it. In fact, he loved it so much, he has been asking me about the second one, and if we could get that one too." Amazon
"From my father down to my six-year old, our entire family enjoyed watching how John Deere combines are made in Moline, Illinois. There aren't many shows where three generations can give an enthusiastic 5 star review!" Amazon

John Deere Country Part 2 DVD
John Deere tractors are handed down from generation to generation. One of the reasons for this loyalty came during the depression when John Deere gave farmers extra time to pay for their equipment. The farmers stayed loyal and passed that loyalty to their sons. My dad would never consider buying any other make of tractor, says Hank Friday of La Porte, Indiana. He bled green and yellow and passed that love to me. And I passed it to my son. We're John Deere through and through and always will be.
That's why at farm shows all over the country you see vintage John Deere tractors lovingly restored and proudly driven.
We toured the country and found John Deere owners who have stories to tell. This DVD tells their stories and shows the tractors they love. Includes archival footage of tractors and combines from the 1920s through the 1960s filmed when they were new. 1 hour and 30 min.
"John Deere Country Part 2 is a DVD anthology of true stories by John Deere farming equipment owners. The John Deere brand of tractors and equipment earned customer loyalty for many reasons - one of the most compelling is because of their willingness to give farmers extra time during the Great Depression to pay for their equipment. Archival footage of tractors and combines from the 1920s through the 1960s rounds out this engrossing DVD enthusiastically recommended for tractor aficionados of all ages and backgrounds. 1 hour 30 minutes."
