Hoe Business

“The only difference between a pigeon and the American farmer today is that a pigeon can still make a deposit on a John Deere.”
Jim Hightower

Yes, that’s a John Deere tractor waiting patiently for a pigeon. The figure behind the tractor is actually a 18 foot tall painting by the artist John Cerney. He has a number of these larger than life size paintings planted in farms in and around Salinas, CA. They are meant to honor the hard working farm laborers who keep the whole farm economy going.


  1. Awesome! Had to read the text and watch the photo many times, thought it was a photo montage.

  2. That’s a great quote and great photo!

  3. I'm sure glad you explained that, and even now that I know what it is I'm still having a hard time getting my head around it. It looks so lifelike.


Say what?
