Owner description: Playa Venado Farm is a dairy farm that opens its doors to tourists and locals alike who wish to enjoy breathtaking landscapes of Chile’s southern farmlands on the shores of Lake Llanquihue while learning about the process of milk production and preparation of gourmet manjar (caramel milk spread) on the premises. Located on Route 225 to Ensenada, and only 16 km from downtown Puerto Varas, the farm is surrounded by rolling fields overlooking the lake and the Osorno and Calbuco volcanoes. The dairy cows of Danish Jersey origin are milked daily to provide the basic ingredient in the preparation the traditional homemade recipe of delicious manjar of the highest quality. This farm stands out for its good field management practices, a proper milking routine, sound animal health management, rigorous hygiene standards and special care for the environment.Visitors can tour the facilities of the milking shed, calf barn and feeding patio; learn about production inside the small processing plant, taste freshly made manjar and purchase products in the souvenir shop. This is a delicious opportunity to live an experience that combines the best of our southern farms with the sweetest of our traditional Chilean confections.

One of the best places we have visited in Puerto Varas. Authentic dairy farm just 20 minutes away from town. Easily accessible by car or local bus on the road to Ensenada. You must try their milk caramel spread (manjar)...it's simply out of this world! We also got a chance to look in on newborn Jersey calfs while goats and sheep were grazing in fields nearby. Photo opportunities abound with a great view of the Osorno Volcano, rolling green hills, a tree-lined entrance, well-preserved homestead and farm buildings all built in the old German style. Fundo Playa Venado was also awarded the region's Best Farm of the Year Prize in 2013 and the owners are usually around, ready to explain how their farm works. Don't miss out on experiencing a true part of southern Chile. I personally can't wait to go back when their gourmet cheese factory is up and running!
