Estancia Ranquilco, Patagonia  Horseback riding vacations in the Andean foothills of Patagonia, Argentina. 100,000 acres to explore. #estanciaranquilco

Estancia Ranquilco’s upcoming season kicks off December 8. We’re booking flights and finding an apartment in Buenos Aires to enjoy a few days of our favorite city before heading west to the ranch. It gets me excited...to reunite with the horses, people, garden, mountains...the wild wonderful place we call home for 5 months every year. Are you coming?⠀

POSITION AVAILABLE!⠀
We are seeking a chef for our guest lodge on a remote, family-run, off-grid ranch in Northern Patagonia, Argentina. Prepare farm-to-table meals for guests and staff in a familial, rustic, and not-your-typical dude ranch kind of place. ⠀

Food is an exceptionally important part of our shared experience at #estanciaranquilco - it's a creative and rewarding, albeit challenging, place to flex your cooking skills. Truly #ranchtotable, we produce much of what we eat on the land. Our meat is raised on Ranquilco grass and is never grain-finished before it hits our plates. Our garden supplies greens and countless other crops to adorn the daily table. The river is teeming with rainbow trout. Milk cows provide milk for coffee, yogurt, and cheese. We supplement these #homegrown ingredients with grains, pastas, flour, beans, spices, etc. from town. Wood-fired ovens and open fire pits are commonly used.⠀

Applicants need to be:⠀
* Enthusiastic and skilled, preferably with experience: #cookingwithfire, cooking for large groups, baking bread, butchering/cooking meat⠀

* Enthusiastic about living in #community on a remote and off-grid #ranch

* Enthusiastic about living without modern amenities - limited internet access; hot water heated by fire; limited power supply (no refrigerators, toasters, dryers, television, etc)⠀

Bonus if you have any or all of the following: #horse experience; ranching/farming experience; construction and any other handy(wo)man skills; experience living remotely⠀

Start date: December 1, 2018⠀
End date: March 31, 2019⠀

Compensation: though this is not a high-paying job, some compensation is provided based on experience; full room/board provided, as well as the opportunity to join a multi-day #horsepack trip into the #Andes.

Serious inquiries only. Please send a cover letter detailing your experience with any of the above to info@ranquilco.com. Feel free to ask any questions. We will reply. Thanks!⠀

Ankita Sharma, former Ranquilco intern, on life at the ranch..."The people of Ranquilco are what make the experience special, and you will learn how to live as a member of a close knit community where everyone plays a vital role in the orchestration of the ranch. Community choices will be purposeful, but life and the land will feel free for you to explore. Whether dancing with a gaucho at an infamous asado, riding out on a pack trip, or milking a cow at 6 am, Ranquilco will surprise you. Of all the places I’ve been, Ranquilco is the one my mind wanders back to the most, and I know most who go there feel the same, wishing to return soon again." - Love this photo Ankita sent - free and on the move.⠀
