It’s the time of year that we have rabbits coming out our ears, after Mad as a March Hare season. If you are looking for quality Beveren with a proven show record or Belgian Hares for show or pet, you’ve found the right place.

Author: Trickster Hares
Every Spring comes and I get hit up for rabbits, which I often don’t have any left available. Rabbits here in high country like to breed in March and April!! Unlike chicks, you don’t just hatch them and move them on. They stay with their moms 2-3 months, they get sorted for quality, and then… Continue reading Summer Bloom
Raising Rabbits during the Plague
Yes, we’re still raising Beveren and Belgian Hares, through the coronavirus pandemic, RHD rabbit pandemic, and, well, 2020. We have not been out to shows since 2019, because of all the above. It was a rough year of too many rabbits as we had bred for the West Coast Classic and National Convention! Our home… Continue reading Raising Rabbits during the Plague
Our first Colorado show at Hotchkiss
Beveren were a hit at our first Colorado show! Annabelle refused to cooperate with staying in a carrier – she insisted on holding court, perched on the grooming table for hours – greeting passerby. Some packed her around the show room. One thing I can count on with the Beveren is winning people over with… Continue reading Our first Colorado show at Hotchkiss

Belgian Hare babies!
We have Belgian Hare babies! Probably the last litters until sometime next summer. I have a couple show quality and a few pet quality – meaning their tan factor markings may not be orange enough, or any other conformational issues that means they should not be used in breeding but would make terrific pets. Belgian… Continue reading Belgian Hare babies!
Heirloom Festival in Santa Rosa
What fun! We did an exhibit at the Heirloom Festival for the first time this year. Three days of lots of people, and talking a lot about rabbits! Sold rabbit t-shirts & art too. My rabbits entertained about 500 kids over the three day stretch. That was the hardest part, the busloads of kids arriving… Continue reading Heirloom Festival in Santa Rosa
Selling the Farm – March Madness!
There has been a ton of activity here at the farm, and mostly its been selling off the rabbits, far and wide across the United States. Its been very enjoyable participating in a nationwide rare breed revival project. Afterall, rabbits are one of the easiest sources for home grown food, easy to keep and feed.… Continue reading Selling the Farm – March Madness!
Best Opposite at National Convention
We were thrilled to win Best Opposite Sex of Beveren at ARBA’s National Convention in Del Mar in 2016, with Junior White Beveren Buck, ‘Posey’. Knowing there are really top notch breeders who come to National Convention from all over the U.S., this came as a surprise! We still consider ourselves new breeders going on 6… Continue reading Best Opposite at National Convention
