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
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
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.

Well we were pretty excited here when we won Best of Fur in Beveren at National Convention in Portland 2015. Francis won – I’m impressed for his fur’s length and density as well as softness. Its a gorgeous coat. My doe Big Bertha placed second in the class. Hers is an even more lazy rollback, nearly upright.… Continue reading Won Best in Fur Nationally

Its also on the endangered list by the Livestock… Continue reading A True American Heritage Breed
