I work for John Deere, but this is not what they pay me to do. This is all the stuff that happens behind the scenes while I do my job.
Since I started working for John Deere, I’ve traveled across the country with a group of two-stepping cowboys, eaten fois gras in France, bought dinner for an entire custom harvest crew, and sent farm equipment down a drag strip (we had to improvise smoke for that one).
I’ve also spent seven of the coldest days known to Iowa standing in a corn field, talked to engineers about their feelings, left hotels so early that the coffee wasn’t even started, and routinely find myself miles from the nearest indoor plumbing.
Welcome to my adventures, misadventures and a few things in between– all with a distinctly agricultural flavor.
