Nigerian Dwarf/Pygmy Goats
Nigerian Dwarf goats are known for their wonderful temperaments and gentle, playful personalities. Due to these qualities and their small size, they have made a name for themselves as a great family friendly pet and a common site on many farms.
Buck Run Ranch offers cute baby goats once a year in late spring.
Heritage Narragansett Turkeys
All turkey poults are more fragile than chickens and require higher quality feed as well as warmer initial temperatures in a brooder. However once grown to maturity turkeys are very cold hardy, and active foragers, being able to glean much of their diet from insects and grass. The Narragansett breed matures early, have good brooding instincts, and are able to mate naturally. This makes them an excellent choice for farmsteads.
Mature toms weigh about 28 pounds, hens weigh 16 pounds. At the best weight for harvest, young toms weigh 23 pounds, while hens weigh 14 pounds. The hens lay nice large eggs with ivory to medium brown speckled shells.
The Livestock Conservancy places Narragansett turkeys on its “watch” list, meaning the organization identifies fewer than 2,500 individuals in the United States and fewer than 10,000 estimated worldwide.
Buck Run Ranch is proud to sell a pure bloodline/strain of these beautiful birds that Cackle Hatchery has developed and maintained since 1976. We are happy to have these on our farm and continuing the breed for future generations to enjoy.
We offer poults in spring and fall that are raised naturally by our hens.
Black Angus Cattle
Buck Run Ranch specializes in high quality grass fed Angus beef. Our beef is not like the dry grass fed beef of big box stores and our beef frequently surprises our customers with its quality exceeding that in a typical grocery store's inventory at a competitive price. Cattle are moved to a fresh clean pasture each day and fed fresh hay over the winter before being processed at a USDA inspected facility. The premium quality of our beef is a result of careful genetic selection, lots of fresh air, plenty of sunshine, clean water/environment, and a diet of natural grass and hay consistent with nature's bovine design.
