Can you explain a bit more about the story of the ranch?
My parents have lived at Estancia San Juan de Quillen, the home of Caballadas, for the past 50 years. My father moved there first. He was born and raised in Buenos Aires but his family spent every summer in Patagonia and he knew at a very young age that he wanted to spend his life there. Once he reached his twenties he moved to the estancia and never looked back. He met my mother a few years later; they married and raised their family there.
My mother is fantastic and dedicates her time to helping the local people. She manages La Liga, a non-profit shop on the estancia that provides clothing and household goods for the community. The shop dates back to the 1950s when it was founded by my three great-aunts who lived on the estancia. They managed the big house in the summer holidays when all the rest of the family came to visit…
