Before leaving the Amana Colonies, we took a tour of the Kinze farm equipment factory located just south of the colonies. It was a very interesting tour and a great success story of a 21 year man with a drive to fix and manufacture equipment. Today the company has customers around the globe. There are over 40 patents for farming equipment
The tour included a tram ride around the factory, where pictures were not allowed and then a tour of the innovation center and an equipment display. This included video of self driving harvesters. Well worth a visit.
