  • Description

    Description

    We are a livestock company, which preserves the traditional works of the regional field, with work that has been carried out for decades in the area. It was born as a family business, with the purpose of developing farming tourism and offering our visitors, the opportunity to observe and live experiences related to the work, customs and culture of a typical cattle ranch in Patagonia.
    We are interested in rescuing the traditions of the Chilean countryside, both the Magellanes and the shearing, the work with sheep dogs, as well as typical activities in other areas of the country such as the Chilean Rodeo. All this in a family atmosphere with cozy accommodation facilities, horseback riding, antique museum and tasty meals.

    Somos una empresa ganadera, que conserva los trabajos tradicionales del campo regional, con labores que se han desempeñado durante décadas en la zona. Nace como un emprendimiento familiar, con el propósito de desarrollar turismo de estancia y ofrecer a nuestros visitantes, tanto familias, como grupos de turistas, la oportunidad de observar y vivir experiencias relacionadas con el trabajo, costumbres y cultura de una estancia ganadera típica de la Patagonia.
    Nos interesa rescatar las tradiciones del campo chileno, tanto las Magallánicas como lo son las faenas de esquila, los arreos y el trabajo de los perros ovejeros, así como también actividades típicas de otras zonas del país como el Rodeo Chileno. Todo esto en un ambiente familiar con acogedoras instalaciones de alojamiento, cabalgatas, museo de antigüedades y sabrosas comidas.
