Red Farm House (Cick on Image) was recently photographed in middle Patagonia, Argentina (El Bolson – Rio Negro). This is a family-owned farm with fruit trees and vineyards, both now laying dormant during the cold winter months. This small farm is nestled in a bucolic valley at the foot of the Andes Mountains (the world’s second highest mountain range). The day was cold and blustery, and I drove through pouring rain, blowing snow and subfreezing temperatures before finally reaching this beautiful location.
Although the house is large, it is simple when compared to homes in the United States, and most homes in the area are still heated with wood burning fireplaces. The first immigrants to this area (Patagonia) were Swiss and Dutch, followed by Germans and even Welshmen. Spain and Italy also provided immigrants to Argentina, many escaping war and hardship in their own countries and looking for a better way of life. World class beef, sausages, chocolate, beer and wine can all be enjoyed in Argentina
