Living on Estancia in Uruguay (January 2015).
This beautiful farm estate in Uruguay has successfully been transformed into a commercial crop farm with excellent results. Four years ago the owner started growing commercial crops on this farm. Currently 70% of the entire farm is being used for the cultivation of grains. In recent years soy beans, wheat and barley were planted on this farm as winter or summer crop. In Uruguay it is possible to have double cropping on fertile soils. After three years of having non-stop soy bean and wheat rotation the land was ´set aside´ from June to October, meaning it was used as grassland for cattle grazing. In November 2014 soybeans were seeded on 70% of the land.
The cultivation of commercial crops is complemented with the fattening of Hereford cows on the remaining part of this beautiful farm. There is also a large number of horses.
The owner has recently renewed fences along the access road and he has also planted new fruit trees in the garden. All buildings: main house, two guest cottages and house for staff were painted less than a year ago. A new garage for four vehicles was constructed in 2014.
Apart from highly productive farmland this property also offers high quality residential facilities at a unique location between Montevideo (80 km) and Punta del Este (100 km) in Canelones at 30 min. drive from international airport Carrasco.
