A retired insurance executive, William Deyesso led the third-party provider Buyer's Choice, Inc., in Boston as CEO. Now residing in Wolfeboro, New Hampshire, William Deyesso maintains a gentleman’s farm and has an interest in regional farming practices.
One innovative project launched by the New England Small Farm Institute a decade ago is the Conservation Partnership Initiative for Grazing, which was undertaken through a USDA grant. Centered in Massachusetts' largest watershed, the Chicopee River Basin. The initiative sought to bring farm diversification to an area in which small agricultural operations had caused significant surface and groundwater degradation over the decades.
Emphasizing proper water and grazing management, the project brought pasturing of animals in grasslands back to the fore. These took the place of confinement livestock operations that were having a major impact on water resources and riparian system health. With some 40 percent of the basin protected from urban development, the area was seen as ideal for introducing best practices that ensure synergies between farming, the welfare of livestock, and the integrity of the natural environment.
William Deyesso, an experienced real estate executive, is now applying his expertise to the insurance industry as CEO of Buyer’s Choice, Inc. In addition to his business endeavors, William Deyesso supports several worthy charities, including the South Shore Visiting Nurse Association serving communities in Southeastern Massachusetts.
The South Shore Visiting Nurse Association has been helping patients recover in the comfort of their own homes for more than a century, and was named as a member of the 2015 HomeCare Elite for the fourth consecutive year. The Association represents the nurses and other healthcare professionals who make house calls for South Shore Hospital in South Weymouth, Massachusetts.
In addition to standard healthcare and home assistance, the South Shore Visiting Nurse Association provides patients with social services when needed. Recognizing that non-medical problems at home can negatively impact recovery, the Association maintains partnerships with licensed social workers to make house calls.
These experienced professionals stand ready to help with assessments and evaluations, counseling services, and crisis intervention. They are also available to discuss end-of-life proceedings and offer support to patients and families during this difficult time.
