Uruguay

It lacks mountains and has very few natural forests, but Uruguay makes up for what can be missed, with the seemingly eternal pampas of rolling grasslands. Our farms in Uruguay are mixed pasture and arable.

Location

All of our seven farms are in the southwest of Uruguay. You can reach our most southern farm, Los Olivos, with a 2,5 hours drive from the country’s capital, Montevideo. And from Los Olivos to our most northern farm, Doña Maria, the drive will take 3,5 hours.

The rest of the farms rests 45 minutes in relay between them.

Production

The temperate climate and natural grasslands enable us to produce world-class beef from grass-fed, open-range Angus Aberdeen cattle. The fertile soils in the southwest allow us to grow seeds and row crops like wheat, corn, and barley.
