Gearing up for Fieldwork
As we get closer to spring, rice growers make sure their equipment is ready for the fieldwork when it is time to plant.
Everett Willey is excited to be the fourth generation to work on his family’s rice farm in Sutter County. He is a graduate of the University of Nevada, Reno, where he received a degree in agricultural science. Working alongside his dad, Steven, Everett is learning what it means to be a conscientious employer and grower for the rice industry. During the winter months, he enjoys hunting and managing their small duck club.
