Meet Your Farmer: Ed Wilsey of Homestead Natural Foods

Ed Wilsey is a lifelong rancher who owns Homestead Natural Foods with 2 other ranch families.  Bill and Carol Gale of Middleton, Keith and Sharon Heuttig of Jerome and my guest Ed and his wife, Debby Wilsey of Marsing, are together the proprietors of Homestead Natural Foods.  The collective also markets beef from other small ranchers who follow the same grass-fed growing protocols.  This cooperative effort allows small Idaho ranches an opportunity to make a living selling their wholesome products, where alone they might not be able to fill a steady account to stores or restaurants or to afford the transport and marketing costs associated with bringing your product to market here in Idaho.
