Since 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 loggers. And Deere has never outgrown, nor forgotten, its founder's original core values. 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
We work every day to uphold our founder's core values. Integrity, quality, commitment, and innovation are more than ideals we work toward. They are values we live and breathe – values found in every product, service, and opportunity we offer.
The quality of a company is expressed through the quality of its leadership. For nearly 175 years, John Deere has benefitted by strong, decisive leaders at its helm, dedicated to the core principles of integrity, quality, commitment, and innovation.

Doing business with us
John Deere is very selective when choosing our suppliers and dealers. We must both totally support John Deere core values: integrity, quality, commitment, and innovation. If this is the way you define your business – your work ethics – then you may benefit from a relationship with John Deere as a dealer, supplier, or manufacturer of a John Deere-licensed product.
Today, Deere & Company is one of the world's most admired businesses. But in 1837, John Deere, blacksmith and inventor, had little more than a blacksmith shop, a discarded steel saw, and an idea that would help farmers, changing the face of agriculture for all time.Read more about the history of John Deere
