All the produce we sell here, we've grown here. Come out and visit the old dairy barn, converted into a retail store. You can purchase seasonally available produce, forage-fed meats, honey, jams and syrups...or just relax on the lawn and catch the nostalgia of an era of self sufficiency, neighborliness, and a robust country-life freshness. We have no entry fee to visit the ranch, how could we, we want it to be YOUR Ranch also.
We know many of you have a favorite pet. We can not however, with the exception of authenticated service animals, permit them on the ranch. If you bring your pet, we ask you keep them confined to your vehicle. Service animals must be authenticated and checked in at the store, leashed at all times. This is a year round working Ranch, with many food, ranch, animal, and visitor safety issues to consider. Thank you.

-- Field Trip Note. If you would like to bring a group to the ranch this spring, summer, or fall, we'd certainly enjoy having you! There is no formal reservation process, just check hours we are open for the days you wish. There is no cover charge to visit the ranch. If you want to do PYO berries or pumpkins, check out that section under the PYO tab. Remember the PYO minimum applies to anyone going to the berry fields. We can't schedule berry PYO ahead, it's very crop dependent and unpredictable. Pumpkins last friday in Sept thru 10-31. Calendar the dates you want, keep checking here and by listening to the phone message, (208-466-3860). Questions leave a message. Thanks.
--- Stoker Coal. A brief history. Stoker coal is a sized coal which works for coal furnaces which have regulated self feeders. These feeders are referred to as stokers. We live at The Berry Ranch, our home is heated with a thermostatically controlled stoker coal stove. We have had difficulty finding coal for our stove. We finally were able to secure a bulk shipment, and knowing the difficulty we had, want to share with those who likewise may be experiencing difficulty heating their homes. We are offering bins approximately weighing .84 ton, or about 1700 pounds, for $300.00. We will load into your pickup, or trailer, in the bin. If interested, give us a call.
PLEASE NOTE: At this time we accept CASH or CHECKS, cards w/ 5% surcharge.

Honey, Jams and Syrups
Delicious jams and syrups from our own berries await you! Currently sold out of Jam and Syrup, and Honeycomb. The bee hives from our field contribute to the honey we sell on the farm, so the honey is not exclusively from our farm. It's not pasteurized, which means the natural vitamins and pollens have not been heated out of it. Many people have told us they find it helps fight allergies to pollens in our local area.
JAMS and SYRUPS: Sold out for now
Small honey bear $6.70
Large honey bear $12.90
Honey Comb, out for now
1/2 Gallon honey $30.19
Forage Based Beef
Our Angus Beef are grown right here at the ranch without hormones, antibiotics, or meat-based protein. The calves are grown here on our pasture until weaned, and are then moved to their own pasture. When the grass slows down we supplement with alfalfa and grass hay and other forages. They're harvested when mature, and no longer cute, are USDA Inspected and available whole, 1/2, 1/4, or as individual packaged cuts. The quality is superb! A note about "grass fed". This is referring to the concept of feeding the animals their natural diet of forage, not high concentrate grain. Remember corn is a grass, and technically corn fed could be construed to be grass fed. Know your source. What we have discovered is that a forage based diet allows the rumen to function normally, the animal to grow normally, and the nutritional composition of the meat to be better for us. Enjoy.
Whole, $6.35/lb, figured on weight of USDA Inspected packages in box you pick up in our store.
1/2 beef is $6.55/lb, packaged
1/4 beef is $6.80/lb, packaged
Consider if you are comparing to hanging weight price quotes that those do not include cut out, shrink, and processing charges. Translation: Our $6.35/lb in package price, if your cutout percent is 65 which would be very high, is the same as a $4.17 hanging wt cost, assuming no charge for cut and wrap.
