Hatch is located just west of the banks of the Rio Grande River 37 miles north of Las Cruces via I-25. The northernmost incorporated community in Doña Ana County, the Village of Hatch is home to close to 1,200 residents, many of whom work in the fertile fields of the surrounding Hatch Valley. The area produces the world-famous Hatch chile and hosts the annual Hatch Chile Festival, which draws thousands to the village.
With the building of Spaceport America northeast of Hatch and a new Doña Ana Community College branch campus, Hatch is poised to take advantage of the new technologies coming to Southern New Mexico. Hatch is 84 minutes from the El Paso International Airport.
