Only in Iowa: A Factory in a Cornfield

This is the view outside of my office: 


Yep, that's corn. 

Lots of corn. 

And some brand spankin' new equipment waiting to be shipped to a dealer. 


Notice the fences around said corn. Considering the cost of the equipment (and the equipment we use to build the equipment!) the John Deere factories are serious about security.

I took pictures from publicly accessible places, but I was wondering if the guards were going to hear about some suspicious person with a camera. I wasn't so worried about getting in trouble as I had no idea how I'd explain to people why the heck I was taking pictures of corn. It's not exactly a rare site here in Iowa…
