The possessions formed a single production and social interaction system in which the landlords, amo (farm manager), madona (housekeeper) and the misatges (permanent workers), etc., all lived. A part of all of the houses was reserved for the owners, albeit they generally lived in the city (Palma). The job of the amo (farm manager), amitger or majoral (supervisor), depending on each case, was to manage the farming of the estate. They established, organised and supervised the work of all of the workers, ensuring its financial profitability. The madona, the wife of the amo or majoral, had a very important role in the functioning of the possessió. Cleaning the house, cooking, washing and taking care of the animals were just some of her duties.
As regards the other workers, there were the missatges, who worked on the estate year-round, and the jornalers, who were hired temporarily to carry out specific jobs. All of them lived and worked in the different facilities that formed part of the houses of the possessió. Some of those who worked on the estate throughout the year were the bover, porquer and the hortolá, while those who were hired for specific tasks included the segadors (reapers), the traginers (muleteers) and the collidores d´oliva (olive collectors), people who normally came from different parts of the island. Furthermore, there were also workers who specialised in forest-related activities, geared towards making the most of the resources available. Some of these included roters (sharecroppers), margers (hillside terrace builders and repairers), llenyaters (lumberjacks), carboners (charcoal makers), calciners (lime makers) and nevaters (ice makers), who were usually hired separately from the others to undertake such work.
