Translation from Spanish “Cuenta” with “it has” or “It counts”

This is a translation question

From the Spanish:

Cuenta con 14 campos de cultivo en los estados de Michoacán, Baja California Norte y Jalisco.

Which one would be a better translation?

It counts with 14 cultivation fields in the states of Michoacán, Baja California Norte and Jalisco.

It has 14 cultivation fields in the states of Michoacán, Baja California Norte and Jalisco.

Can I translate “cuenta con” with “Counts with”?

Answer

I think the meaning here is closest to a tally, a counting of items.

  1. verb
    If you tally numbers, items, or totals, you count them.

In your example,

Company X has 14 cultivation fields in the states of Michoacán, Baja California Norte and Jalisco.

means that someone counted the fields and the total was 14. But the statement itself does not do any counting. So I would use has or some other word reflecting the resulting total.
