Attractions

See MenuHide Menu

A one-of-a-kind opportunity!

The Gold Key program provides John Deere customers with firsthand experience of the quality workmanship built into their new Deere machine. Customers receive a private, behind-the-scenes, guided tour of the factory where their equipment is manufactured. They also visit with factory employees, enjoy a complimentary lunch, and, whenever possible, see or start their own machine on the production line.
