Join Select Holidays on our hosted Agriculture tour of Argentina & Chile.  Enjoy your experience of the wineries in the area around Santiago and see how the grapes are cultivated, picked, and the wine is produced, which is one of Chile’s biggest agriculture exports.  Walk through one of Chile’s largest farmer’s markets filled with fresh fruits and vegetables harvested in that area. Visit local farmers to tour their farming operations while their locally produced farm lamb is cooking on the BBQ for our dinner.  As you cross over to Argentina you will come upon the farm lands of Patagonia that has thousands of hectares of land dedicated to cattle farming, sheep farming and forestry.  You will visit the largest inland grain handling system, where farmers have their grain hauled to for export.  The pampas of Argentina produce vast amounts of soy beans, corn, and sunflower as well as lush pasture for the cattle farms in the area.  You will return home with the great memories of experiencing the farming in these countries as well the deep culture.
