Michigan City, IN (PRWEB) April 20, 2009
TM Productions visited the heartlands of America filming John Deere Country, Part 2, Stories About the Folks Who Love John Deere, available immediately.
"John Deere represents America's great work ethic, customer brand loyalty and the will to prevail," says producer, Tom McComas. "We spoke with a diverse and interesting group of people - people who have had the love for John Deere passed from generation to generation."
Amidst the amber hills of the West, the corn fields of the Midwest, and the vineyards and orchards across America, Tom discovered a re-occurring theme - a reverence and love for John Deere equipment. TM Productions explores this iconic American manufacturer with real stories from the people who truly "bleed green."
One reason for this intense loyalty came during the Great Depression when John Deere gave farmers extra time to pay for their equipment. "My dad would never consider buying any other make of tractor," exclaimed Hank Friday of La Porte, IN. "He passed this love to me. And I passed it to my son. We're John Deere through and through and always will be."
John Deere Country, Part 2, Stories About the Folks Who Love John Deere is entertaining, educational, with network-quality production values, and a thoughtful blending of archival and current footage starring the high-powered machines of today, and beautifully restored Johnny Poppers made prior to 1960. Come along for the ride.
