An 11,000 acre working cattle ranch of 1,500 Aberdeen Angus cows, bulls, calves and horses.
Campo de las Minas respects the century-old gaucho traditions combining them with the rules of natural conservation and biodiversity protection.The ranch is secluded and almost inaccessible. North of the vast Pampas, East of the Andes and South of the dry Northern provinces, at an altitude between 3,500 and 6,000 feet, in the heart of Cordoba and the Sierra Chica, Argentina.
The ranch is on top of San Miguel and Las Barrancas, two privatly owned and historic Estancias. Las Minas is vast: mountains, eucalyptus forests, pine groves, canyons, rivers, arroyos and cascades. The cattle graze freely, the horses know no stables, the condors tame the winds. Three century-old low stone walls (pircas) meander seemingly infinitely. A dirt road leads you to some corrales or a welcoming home, hidden in the shadow of a willow thicket.
