  • Description


    Hello, my name is Elizardo and I am going to tell you a little about our family project (I say ours but the ones who really live in the countryside are my parents, EVELYN and ELIZARDO). We are located in the commune of LONQUIMAY, LA ARAUCANÍA REGION, CHILE, 30 km from the border with ARGENTINA. Our field is purely livestock (cattle and goats) but in the future we want to add the theme of rural tourism. The tasks that are carried out are mainly with cattle and goats (deworming, grazing change, artificial insemination among others) all this is done riding and surrounded by beautiful landscapes, valleys, hills, crystalline rivers, pure waters from natural springs and accompanied of the meals of the best chef in the world, my mom.

    Hola, me llamo Elizardo y les voy contar un poquito sobre nuestro proyecto familiar( digo nuestro pero los que realmente viven en el campo son mis Padres, EVELYN y ELIZARDO). Estamos ubicados en la comuna de LONQUIMAY, REGIÓN DE LA ARAUCANÍA, CHILE, a 30 km de la frontera con ARGENTINA. Nuestro campo es netamente ganadero (bovinos y caprinos) pero queremos a futuro agregárle el tema del turismo rural. Las tareas que q se realizan son principalmente con animales vacunos y cabras (desparasitar, cambio de pastoreo, inseminación artificial entre otros) todo esto se realiza cabalgando y rodeado de hermosos paisajes, valles, cerros, rios cristalinos, aguas puras de vertientes naturales y acompañadas de las comidas de la mejor chef del mundo, mi mamá.
