About Us

About usSince its founding in 1837, John Deere has seen a great many changes in its business, its products, its services. Change always comes with opportunity. And Deere has always been ready and willing to embrace it. Yet, through it all, John Deere is still dedicated to those who are linked to the land – farmers and ranchers, landowners, builders. And Deere has never outgrown, nor forgotten, its founder’s original core values integrity, quality, commitment and innovation. Those values determine the way we work, the quality we offer, and the unsurpassed treatment you get as a customer, investor, employee.

Our core values

It may be an understatement to say that we work every day to uphold our founder’s core values. Because integrity, quality, commitment, innovation are not ideals we work towards. We live them. We breathe them. These values are the true essence of how we work and are in every product, service and opportunity we offer you.
