As the farm has grown over the last 10 years, so has the team at Catalan de Las Mercedes. Nicholas and Angie Hammond have created a family-style culture here. One where workers and their children are accommodated so families stay together, and where opportunities for learning and growth are accessible.
The Catalan farm and mill provide lodging, kitchens and dining areas for workers traveling far distances during the harvest season. The Education Centre is the next chapter in that culture of family, and one that we are proud to support by funding all of its educational costs, including teacher wages.
