Based in Michigan, ND, we're a family-owned John Deere dealership, currently in our third generation of family ownership. We serve our customers out of four locations in ND. Our core values are the same as they were in 1963. We believe that "people buy from people" and we value our customer, employee, and supplier relationships above all else.
