What makes R.C. Hatton Inc. different from other farms?
Microclimate: Our 8,000-acre farm is located beside Lake Okeechobee, an area known for its rich and fertile “black gold” soil. Protected by the warmth of the lake, the nutrient-rich soil is perfect for growing our green beans, corn, sugar cane, and, well … anything else we decide to grow. Also, during the winter, the lake creates a mild “microclimate,” and frost concerns are minimal – this allows for a long growing season and our famous, delicious sweet corn, green beans, and cabbage in the winter!
From Our Farm to Your Table.
You can be assured that your food is carefully and safely grown. How? First, all of our corn is non-GMO. Also, R.C. Hatton Inc. is involved in the entire process, from planting the corn seed to loading the delivery truck.
Food & Enviroment Safety
Founded on Fertile Grounds.
R.C. Hatton Farms is located in Pahokee, Florida which is on the eastern shore of Lake Okeechobee, and is known for having some of the most fertile ground in the United States. Okeechobee, a word meaning “big water” in Seminole, represents the name of “Lake Okeechobee”, the largest lake in Florida. The lake is completely surrounded by the Herbert Hoover Dike, which has kept R.C. Hatton’s farmland safe from flooding for many generations.
Dating Back to 1932.
Robert C. Hatton founded R.C. Hatton Farms in 1932 during the Great Depression. R.C. Hatton Farms initially produced sweet corn and beans and expanded over the years from several hundred acres to its present size of 12,000 acres. Son Roger Hatton took over the business in the sixties and incorporated R.C. Hatton in 1964.
