The Ranch Out of Time, or Anachronia Dinosaur Farm, is an expansion to the player-owned farm that was announced at RuneFest 2019. It is located on an island off the west coast of Anachronia, which can be accessed through the mystical tree at Manor Farm or on the west coast of Anachronia next to the campfire where the broken compass can be found.
The player works alongside Granny Potterington's great grandmother, Prehistoric Potterington, to set up five new paddocks (two large, one medium, one small, and one breeding pen) on Anachronia to house frogs, salamanders, jadinkos, and dinosaurs. The pens are initially unlocked with beans but are then constructed using Anachronia resources rather than planks and nails. Unchecked animals can be gathered from Hunter, Slayer, and Big Game Hunter. The Ranch has its own Farmers' Market and shares the bean currency with the Manor Farm.
Ranch livestock require level 42 to 120 Farming and level 45 to 90 Construction to build the pens. All of the Ranch breeds are included within the Animal breeding log; the update introduced 14 new species with a total of 65 variants. There are currently no Farmhands on the Ranch Out of Time.

Animals[edit | edit source]
Different livestock can be obtained via Slayer (varanusaurs and brutish dinosaurs), Hunter (jadinkos), Big Game Hunter (apoterrasaurs, scimitops, asciatops, malletops, and rexes), or the Farmers' Market (frogs and salamanders). Unchecked livestock can be traded with other players but not on the Grand Exchange. Checked animals are given a random name, which can be changed using an animal name re-roller.
The warning when checking an animal may be turned off; however, it cannot be turned back on once done. Temporary skill boosts cannot be used to add an animal to a pen they lack the level requirement for.
Unlike chinchompas of Manor Farm that can breed only the same color, jadinkos can lay eggs of other types of jadinkos (eg. two aquatic can lay a carrion egg). Varanusaurs also can lay eggs of other types (eg. two feral varanusaurs can lay a ripper varanusaur egg).
Growth stages[edit | edit source]
Most animals on the ranch have five growth stages: egg, child, adolescent, adult, and elder. Each stage takes a certain length of time and will advance if the animal is in the pen, even if the player is logged out. Animals will not advance growth stages while in the inventory or bank. Dinosaur growth rates are the same as those of dragons.
New animals may be born when the player is away from the farm or is not logged in. The animals won't start growing until the first time the player visits their farm (or logs back in on the farm) after the animal was born when receiving the message:. After their first visit, the animals can grow through all the growth stages without a need to return to the farm again.

Pens[edit | edit source]

Perks[edit | edit source]
One farm totem (bought from the Farmers' Market) can be added to each pen on the Ranch (excluding the breeding pen). If there is at least one elder animal in the pen, the totem will activate a Tier 1 perk related to the contained livestock. Tier 2 perks can be activated by having the same elder species in 2 pens with farm totems attached to them.
As there is only one of the small and medium pens, they will not have a tier 2 effect.

|Small||Frog||Flycatcher||Yield from stinkshrooms is doubled.||N/A|

Traits[edit | edit source]
Ranch livestock share traits with Manor Farm livestock.
Feeding[edit | edit source]
Animals require food to increase and retain happiness and health. Once an animal has been added to a pen, players can fill their trough with up to 1,000 suitable elements, listed under the animal's info in the pen or by clicking "get info" for animals in the player's inventory. Food can be added either noted or unnoted, and the trough can be used from both inside and outside the pen; noted is recommended to allow all 1000 to be added at a time.
Disease[edit | edit source]
Ranch livestock share diseases with Manor Farm livestock.
Breeding[edit | edit source]
Ranch livestock do not have any season-specific breed variants. Any variant within each breed can produce offspring of any variant within the same breed - interbreeding of variants in the same breed is possible. Interbreeding between different breeds (e.g. Bagrada Rex and Corbicula Rex) is not possible. Different jadinkos are considered of the same species and can interbreed.
Rabbit perk from Manor farm affect the breeding rate of the Ranch out of time too.
Breeding success[edit | edit source]
|Animals||Breeding rate||Max breed time||Success chance||Average time (Base)|

Selling prices[edit | edit source]
The following table displays an animals' growth stage and its standard selling price, not taking into account the buyers' preferences nor master farmer outfit bonuses.

Beans vs. experience[edit | edit source]
The highest rate of beans is obtained by selling an adolescent animal. Should a player decide to grow an animal further (up to elder) for experience, the rate of experience is as follows.
(at elder stage)

Baby Shakes[edit | edit source]
Baby Shakes will purchase any animals, any quantity and any age, regardless of breed or traits—but at a reduced rate of 10% of the animal’s base adolescent bean value. Baby Shakes can be found on Manor Farm, south-east of Granny Potterington.
Gathered produce[edit | edit source]
Every time an animals grows, the player can gather for items and Farming experience. Unlike with collecting produce from crops, animal produce does not replenish. Produce can only be collected once per growth stage. The experience from harvesting is not affected by bonus experience or other experience modifiers, nor is it doubled during Double XP Weekends, but it will fill farming urns and Advanced pulse cores. If an animal is shiny, it will provide an additional 10% experience. The icon is displayed over each animal when this has grown a stage and has produce to be gathered if the upgrade has been bought from the Farmers' Market and then toggled on Prehistoric Potterington.
