This farm is one of the preeminent cattle operations in the Dominican Republic. The farm enjoys a microclimate favorable to the production of year-round pasture. Several important river traverses the farm. Additionally, there are dozens of springs and small creeks, feeding their crystalline waters into these major arteries.
The farm is approximately eleven hundred and twenty-five acres (7,300 tareas), cross-fenced into over forty pastures, almost all of it with new wire and live posts. Each pasture has live water. About half the land is flat to gently rolling; the other half is hilly, but not too steep to graze. The grass grows so fast, cattle can often be rotated back to a grazed pasture after thirty days.
Livestock and Facilities
We are currently running over 600 head of cattle-Brahma, Brown Swiss, and Holstein Crosses- with the reserve capacity for nearly twice that number. Most cows can raise a calf and be milked once daily, all on grass, with no additional feeds. The farm can be run as an all-beef operation with the existing livestock. The working pens are first-rate, made of concrete and steel.
The house was built using local materials. On a concrete slab, with a pole structure, hand-split royal palm siding, and a tied-thatch roof, the house is an artisanal gem, cool on the hottest day and quiet in the heaviest rainstorm.
Roads, Quarries, Fences, Woodlot
There are two quarries on the farm. One provides excellent road-building material; the other, first-rate aggregate and sand for concrete. The eucalyptus woodlot provides roof beams. All fences have live posts. These materials are for farm use and for sale.
