Ranching - HM:ToT

This page is a Harvest Moon: Tree of Tranquility Ranching Guide.

Ranching is another thing that is important in any Harvest Moon game. At the beginning of the game you will not have a barn or a coop on your plot of land and you will not have access to Brownie ranch. To get to Brownie Ranch you will need to use a hammer to smash the boulder blocking the path using a hammer with 3 levels of skill or wait until the 28th of Spring when the boulder will go away by itself. You will need to pay a visit to the carpenter in order to arrange for a barn or a coop to be built on your plot.

[edit] Build/Upgrade A Coop/Barn

Building A Coop/Barn

Building a barn or coop can be quite pricey but it will be worth it when you have several animals all producing produce for you to sell. To a build a barn you will need 12 lumber pieces, 12 stone pieces, and 3000G. To build a coop you will need 10 lumber pieces, 10 stone pieces and 2400G. You can acquire the lumber by chopping up twigs, stumps and trees. You can acquire stone pieces by smashing up boulders. When you have what you need to start building a barn or a coop talk to the clerk at the Carpenter's shop. Once you've chosen what you would like to have built then you will be asked where on your plot you want it placed. Choose wisely.

Upgrading A Coop/Barn

You can't build another barn or coop but you can upgrade the one you already have. Upgrading the barn requires 22 lumber pieces, 22 stone pieces, and 6000G. Upgrading the coop requires 22 lumber pieces, 22 stone pieces, and 4800G. Upgrading only increases your barn/coop capacity a little. Your barn will hold 6 of any animal but when you upgrade it it will hold 8 of any animal. Your coop will hold 8 chickens or ducks (or a mixture of both) and 6 silkworms but when you upgrade it will hold 12 chickens or ducks and 8 silkworms.
