Lake Farm Centre
Mastertons Coffee and Tea Specialists helps the Centre with their coffee and tea requirements for their Coffee and Craft Shop. All proceeds made from sales in the shop goes towards the centre.
Lake Farm is home to 90 intellectually disabled adults who live in 7 hostels. Most of the residents work in 10 different work groups or workshops and contribute to the upkeep and running of the centre.
The village started in 1959, opened in 1960 and celebrated their 50th anniversary in 2010.
Set in the rural Kragga Kamma area, 15 km from Port Elizabeth , Lake Farm Centre offers a tranquil and picturesque environment that provides a permanent home for 90 mentally challenged adults. Living and working together in harmonious co-operation, where the more able help the weak, every resident is a valued member of the group, enriching our community with their capacity for tolerance, support and love. Our Residents range in age from the early twenties to over sixty, and several who are now in their fifties have been part of this extended family since their early childhood. While some still have families, who are able to contribute financially to their support, a growing number are orphaned and so become entirely dependent on the Centre and on Government subsidies.
Farm Centre is a registered non-profit organisation and public benefit organisation.
