A bit about me

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.

    Hello Tara!

    I love your blog! I grew up on a farm with just about all John Deere equipment (and even married a John Deere farmer…it’s important to both of us to keep green in the family) and have always been keeping my eye open for a job with John Deere. I have had a hard time finding one in communication/advertising/PR related work. I went to NDSU for Ag Communication, PR & Advertising, & Journalism. I have experience with social media, websites, creating ads, and photography. I am still always interested in working for John Deere. Especially after I worked for a farm magazine that focused on new equipment and technologies in agriculture. Where could I start to get my resume into the system and ultimately work for John Deere? I’m currently working in radio (which I never even went to school for…so it’s been a HUGE learning experience) but I still long to work with a company itself in communication. If you could help me I’d really appreciate it! Thank you!


    • Shawna, can you send me your email address? I think that will be the easiest way to go share info.
