Meet the                           Animals

The calves are usually born in late August. They don't really eat out of your hand and don't care to be handled, but they are fun to watch.

Black Spanish might be considered an American Classic. They are beautiful, and make an excellent table bird. They date back to the late 1800’s. They are, still today, one of the most popular variety of heritage turkeys in the United States.

There are several varieties of chickens on the ranch.

  • Dark Rhode Island Reds are an old time, well-known American Breed.

  • New Hampshire Reds are lighter in color and a popular breed for efficient production of large brown eggs.

  • Black Australorps are all black with a green sheen which is beautiful in sunlight. They are also known to produce large brown eggs even in hot weather.

  • The Golden Lakenvelders are strikingly beautiful variety because of their unique color pattern. They have black heads, necks, and tails the rest is a buff color.

  • Silver Lakenvelders have black heads, necks and tails while the remainder of plumage is white.

  • The Silver Laced Wyandotte have a striking color pattern and docile nature is which makes this variety popular.

  • The Barred Plymouth Rock breed is one of American’s oldest and most popular breeds. They are excellent dual purpose breed that is known for production of large brown eggs and meat.

  • The Ameraucanas, known as the “Easter Egg Breed,” have beards, muffs and a normal tail with a tail head which gives them a bunny tail appearance. Ameraucanas are excellent producers of large multicolored eggs, including blue and green eggs. 

Rambouillet ewes and the ram live at The Berry Ranch year round! There will be newborn lambs in the spring. They love eating pellets from our feeder out of your hand.      

Honeybees are helpful to the farmer because they help pollinate the crops. In our store-in-a-barn, you can watch the honeybees at work in a glass beehive. The bees in this glass beehive can - and will - go out into the fields and pollinate. They are a normal beehive, except for the fact that their home is made of glass. This lets you watch them!
