Prepping for Harvest
Grower Everett Willey talks about the first step in preparing for rice harvest, and his hopes for water in the fields this winter.
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.
