Farm Estancia Vira lies in the Pantanal area of Paraguay. It is a 7,650 ha. cattle ranch farm with a great location, being 5 km north of Fuerte Olimpo, the largest and only town in the area. Estancia Vira is a place with an interesting mix of eco/adventure tourism, cattle breeding and fishing.
95% of the territory is suitable for food production with competitive land prices
Paraguay has the potential to triple its current agricultural output
Easy access to a young, efficient, motivated and cost-competitive workforce – 70% of the population is under the age of 35
Paraguay’s subtropical sunshine, fertile soil and short winters make it ideal to grow high-quality citrus crops
Access to key export markets with significant tariff advantages
Lowest energy prices in the region (hydropower from dams). Paraguay consumes only about 10% of the energy produced; most of the energy is exported to Brazil.
One great advantage is that the property has abundant natural grass growing between natural palm trees, as you can see in the pictures. Precipitation can be year-round and is on average 1,100 mm per annually, which means Estancia Vira has excellent natural plant growing conditions. Of course, the farm also has areas where especially bred grass is growing. For the natural grass between the palm trees, there are no costs involved, all you must do is fence in the area. The Estancia Vira can support up to 4,000 cattle (young and old).
At over 17 million hectares, the Pantanal is the world’s largest wetland, extending across the borders of Brazil, Paraguay, and Bolivia. As a critical component of the Rio de la Plata Basin, the world’s fifth-largest watershed, the Pantanal provides natural flood protection for millions of South Americans, refuge for thousands of species, and billions a year in economic output.
