Deere & Company began when John Deere born in Rutland Vermont USA on February 7 1804 moved to Grand Detour Illinois in 1836 to escape bankruptcy in Vermont. Already an established blacksmith Deere opened a 1378-square-foot (128 m2) shop in Grand Detour in 1837 which allowed him to serve as a general repairman in the village as well as a manufacturer of large tools such as pitchforks and shovels. Small tools production was just a start; the item that set him apart was the self-scouring steel plow which was pioneered in 1837 when John Deere fashioned a Scottish steel saw blade into a plow. Prior to Deeres steel plow most farmers used iron or wooden plows to which the rich Midwestern soil stuck so had to be cleaned frequently. The smooth-sided steel plow solved this problem and greatly aided migration into the American Great Plains in the 19th and early 20th centuries.
