John Deere Tractors and the Kids Who Love Them (24 pics)

The heritage of the John Deere brand goes back nearly two centuries with the creation of our first polished-steel plow. Since then, John Deere has managed to climb its way to the top of the agriculture industry, forever solidifying its name in American history.

With such a strong foundation, the John Deere name isn’t only synonymous with farming, tractors, and hard work — it has become a part of American culture. Judging by the brand loyalty on display in the images below, it looks as if the John Deere brand will continue extending its reach for centuries to come. If there’s one thing we know about tractors, it’s that children love them. Many thanks to the parents and photographers responsible for posting these. Their notes are in quotes and italicized.

“A sandy breeze comes swirlin’ ‘round the corner of the shed,
‘tween the house that Grandpa built and that barn Grandma painted red.”

“And that shed door keeps on slammin’ and that breeze keeps circlin’ ‘round,
I know Grandpa surely built it strong but that old shed’s a fallin’ down.”

“And there’s an old green John Deere tractor been settin’ there for years,

Belly deep and sinkin’ fast in sand up to it’s gears.”

“With the cultivator still attached, that sun’s done burned it brown,
And I wonder if it’s figured out Grandpa won’t be back around.”
