Kinze Factory


18 July 2018
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.

We visited the John Deere factory/museum in Waterloo, Iowa, as few years ago and enjoyed it. I'm pretty sure Jimmy would love to stop at this place, too!

Wow that's a lot of patents. I've never heard of this equipment but then I was never a 'real' farmer. More like a truck farmer with horses, burros and chickens.
