Co-Founder, T&D Willey Farms
Tom is host of "Down On The Farm with Tom Willey", a podcast that airs the first Friday of each month on KFCF, 88.1 FM Fresno. Denesse and Tom Willey are pioneers of the Organic Movement, founding T&D Willey Farm in 1980 until recently when they retired. The farm was located on 75 acre patch of the Central San Joaquin Valley in Madera, California. The farm became Certified Organic by California Certified Organic Farmers (CCOF) since 1987. T&D Willey Farms once took advantage of all four seasons of the mild Mediterranean climate to harvest a year-round palette of bountiful vegetables. Tom and a staff of ten grew everything from Brussels Sprouts to Italian Zucchini, employing the latest in biological fertility systems. Denesse managed the hand-harvest, sales and shipping with her permanent staff of 40 and summertime help of as many as 40 additional people.
