Hammond Enterprises and R Diamond Ranch

Clean Energy

The Hammond family raises grass-finished, hormone-free Angus cattle on family grassland east of Curtis and in Hamilton County. They sell split quarters, halves, wholes, and individual cuts. The Hammonds also offer eggs produced by free-range hens. 

In 2015, the Hammonds installed a 25-kilowatt photovoltaic system to power their farm west of Benedict in York County. The project estimate was $84,864, but with a USDA grant and federal tax credits the cost was reduced by $19,100. In just over six years, the project will pay for itself and the farm will benefit from free, clean energy for the life of the solar panels, which typically last twenty five or more years.
