2015 Hall of Fame

Jim Deibert’s passion for excellence is evident in his harvesting operation, from his attention to detail when operating his machines to his focus on each and every member of his crew. And his customers return because they see that passion translated into life-long friendships.

“He’s an essential piece to our farming puzzle,” said Katie Dilse, Scranton, N.D. “The roar of his combines coming down our road brings goose bumps! Jim, with his entire crew, creates an intensity to our farming operation. His work ethic is second to none. His business model on a handshake is the reason he’s so much more than a custom harvester, he’s like a Grandpa to our sons. In the hustle and bustle, he makes time to stop for a smile and a joke. He loves his job, and it shows. And we love him.”

Jim has been called by many “the best in the business” and his passion continues to inspire today.

Snow Day In Colby

By | May 3rd, 2017|

Well who would have predicted that, over 15 inches of snow in Colby, Kansas on the last day of April.

The whole town ended up getting shut down along with surrounding towns and counties.

the crew found it highly entertaining to wake up and see the white fluffy stuff falling from the sky, even more entertaining for our guys from Zimbabwe who had never seen snow in person.

The first couple of inches didn’t seem too much of an issue but then it just turned and before we knew it we had over 15 inches and the drifts were nearly 4ft deep in places.

After the storm had passed we were treated with a pretty amazing sunset but with the knowing that out plans to move south had been put back a few days.
