Program Description


Brian “Fox” Ellis, historian and author, impersonates John Deere, founder of Deere and Company, who at a private board meeting is retiring and handing the plow company to his son Charles.

John Deere reflects on the history of his self-scouring plows, shares some of his personal struggles and then turns to the future and the great changes in agriculture that he foresees in the vision of his son who transforms the company and the future of farming.

Ellis discusses the pros and cons of agriculture versus agribusiness, the role of technology and mechanization, the small family farm, centennial farms, and community service agriculture are discussed.

Mr. Ellis has developed this program for the Deere-Wiman House and Butterworth Center.
