Lon Lon Ranch is a ranch featured in both The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
and The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap
. There also exists a ranch analogous to Lon Lon Ranch in The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask
called Romani Ranch.
Lon Lon Ranch appears for the first time in Ocarina of Time. It is located in the center of Hyrule Field. Talon and his daughter Malon run the ranch, and Ingo works there. They raise horses, cows and cuccos. After Link wakes up Talon, he can learn Epona's Song from Malon. Link can also obtain a bottle filled with Lon Lon Milk if he is able to find the three "Super-Cuccos" in Talon's mini-game.
When Link returns to Lon Lon Ranch as an adult, he finds that Ingo has been given the ranch by Ganondorf and has kicked Talon out of the ranch. However, Link outraces Ingo in a horse race, and wins, with the help of Epona. The frustrated Ingo then locks him in the ranch to prevent him from escaping with Epona, but Link and Epona escape anyway, jumping over the Ranch's outer fence. Ingo seemingly returns to normal after this, and Talon moves back to the ranch. In the child part of the game if Link tries to enter the house Talon will say, "Malon is asleep and so will I be." If one enters the home during the day and plays sun song and goes to the houses bedroom no one will be there thereby meaning Malon can not be found at night time in the child part.
In its second appearance, Lon Lon Ranch in located in eastern Hyrule. In this game too, it is owned and operated by Malon and Talon, who raise cows and cuccos still, but only have one horse. At one point, Talon loses the key to the house, however, Link retrieves it for him. Malon is then able to sell her Lon Lon Milk in Hyrule Town
