William Deyesso leverages expertise in business leadership and operations to serve as the CEO of the third-party insurance administrator Royal Administration Services, Inc. Based in New Hampshire, William Deyesso also operates a gentleman’s farm, a small operation maintained for personal enjoyment rather than income.
In the Northeast, gentleman farmers often grow their own crops, an endeavor that starts with clearing and leveling a plot before the first fall freeze. Growers can then plant a cover crop of legumes or small grains, which protects the soil from erosion and acts as an organic fertilizer when the plants are tilled under in the spring.
After clearing and leveling the land, farmers focus on soil quality by assessing and improving the pH balance, an important element that impacts nutrient levels in the soil. Farmers use a variety of products to adjust soil pH, including organic compost, elemental sulfur, and peat moss. In addition to healthy soil, farmers must implement an effective irrigation system based on the climate and other environmental considerations.
