Calendars For Lovers Of The Green And Yellow Tractor
Whether you are a big time farmer, a home gardener or just the one who mows your own lawn; I am sure that you are familiar the green and yellow tractors and machinery and you just may own one or two of them. If so, you might really enjoy having a John Deere calendar to help you keep all of your busy days organized. You can use them to mark down the appointments that you have coming up, the last time you mowed your lawn, important family dates, when you planted those crops or anything else you find the need to keep track of. And while you are recording that information that is relevant to how you spend your days, weeks, and months you can enjoy looking at images of tractors from Deere & Company.
Most people who have a John Deere keep them around for a while because they are pretty reliable. Take a peek at the tractor at the left. It looks like the horse that was rode hard and put away wet but I’ll just bet you that if it has some gas in it and has been oiled and tuned that it still runs like a charm. It does not have to look pretty to get the job done.
There are not as many options for a John Deere Calendar as there are actual tractors and machinery made by the company but there are a few that can help you stay organized and manage your time better. Most everyone calls the company John Deere but the actual corporate name is Deere & Company. It is headquartered in Moline, Illinois and has been around since 1837. I would say those fellas (and ladies) know a thing or two about making equipment that helps farmers get their work done. Wouldn’t you?
The company has grown with the times and makes other products besides just tractors that work in all sorts of industries. I will tell you a little more about that later on the page.
“Nothing Runs Like A Deere” – is the slogan for John Deere
It may have started with tractors but the company has expanded over the decades and now they make all sorts of equipment like:
- tractors of all sizes including lawn tractors
- cotton harvesters
- UTVs (Gators!)
- construction equipment
- forestry equipment
- lawn mowers
- snow throwers
I’ll bet you had no idea that they made so many pieces of machinery that help not just the farmer but other industries and homeowners, too.
Old Tractors Are Kind Of Cool
At least I think many of the old tractors are pretty cool. The design of them has certainly changed over the last century or so and it is fun to see how they have changed. Tractor Calendars sometimes have vintage and antique calendars showcased on the pages. They may not all be John Deeres but they are really interesting to see and find out about.
Back in the 1920s and 1930s many of the tractors had an almost Art Deco style to their design. They might have been the gasoline propelled work horses of the farm but they also had a style that is still appealing to our senses today. The very early tractors had a very boxy and utility driven design which changed to more rounded styles and today’s farm equipment almost combines the two looks. They look sort of square with rounded edges.
John Deere is one of the largest manufacturers of machinery for agriculture in the world.
A calendar that can take you through to next year. Starting in September of this year and going through December of next year this wall calendar shows you a collection of tractors some of which have been restored. You will see the early Poppin’ Johnny models along with Models A and B and some newer generation styles of tractors.

We have a JD lawn tractor and love it – and our home in Vermont is in Rutland, birthplace of the man himself.
