The father of three and grandfather of five, William Deyesso is an experienced corporate executive and former CEO. He is also involved in charitable organizations such as Toys for Tots and the Special Olympics. Outside of his career and philanthropy, William Deyesso runs a gentleman’s farm in New Hampshire.
A gentleman’s farm is a small-scale, non-operative farm typically used as a horse or hobby farm or to support a bed and breakfast. While the production of food through plants or raising animals is part of the farm’s operation, it is not the primary means of income for the farmer. The gentleman farmer instead farms for pleasure, rather than production output or profit.
Farming techniques can vary, but they are often environmentally responsible and are conscious to animal welfare and public health, similar to organic farming. Gentleman farming also differs from the more commonplace large-scale industrial agriculture, which emphasizes efficiency and cost.
