Founded in 1955, Frigorífico Pando has a long history of agricultural tradition. The farm is located less than 20 miles outside of Uruguay’s capital city, and their pasture-raised cattle thrive under near-perfect climate conditions while grazing on healthy, fertile grasses of ryegrass, clover and alfalfa. Uruguay has virtually no air pollution and is home to one of the largest reserves of clean water in the world, where there are no snow storms, earthquakes, hurricanes and freezing temperatures. This optimal environment provides a comfortable and peaceful way of living for the herds, so they develop healthy and strong naturally.Read more about the farm
