A growing customer segment for Riesterer & Schnell is “rural lifestyle”— landowners with five to 100 acres which they maintain in addition to working at another job outside the farm.

Once again, Riesterer & Schnell has multiple John Deere products for sale which can benefit the hobby farmer and country landowner. The same holds true for yet another segment of Riesterer & Schnell’s business—the turf, landscaping and commercial industries.

For that latter segment, the company held its third annual John Deere Landscape & Turf Show on Wednesday, March 14 at Oshkosh’s EAA grounds. Riesterer & Schnell and John Deere Landscape host the largest display of John Deere products in one space located indoors. They had equipment and products on display as well as informative speakers focusing on a variety of topics.
