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
We’ve grown by one heritage breed! A true American heritage breed – developed right here in America. I didn’t really think about it until it was pointed out to me, most rabbit breeds were imported originally. The Silver Fox was developed here, a hundred years ago. Its also on the endangered list by the Livestock… Continue reading A True American Heritage Breed
I get questions about colony raising all the time, frequently from people who are also interested in Beveren. Since I raise 6 different breeds of rabbits its been interesting to note which ones do well co-housed in rabbit herds. Surprisingly, its the American. They are hands-down the most laid back and willing to get along… Continue reading Best Breeds for Colony Rearing

I was surprised to learn the correct shade of Beveren blue in the UK is slightly different – it seems more bright a shade, similar to the medium blue in the previous post, but more blue than gray… I’d love to get my hands on one! Check out more pix: http://beveren.moonfruit.com/
The correct shade of blue for Beveren is the one in the middle! This was a big discussion at the Stockton fair last weekend. The one on the left, too dark and is American Blue, the one on the right is lilac like the Lilac breed. Since “light lavender blue” has been interpreted differently by… Continue reading Correct shade of Beveren Blue
