We raise French, German and English angora for fiber. Our next breeding will not be until the Fall of 2019. That breeding will be of French Angora. Our breeding of our English and German will not take place until Spring 2020, so please be sure to check back here for updates.
Currently we are preparing to sheer our French angora in June 2019. If you are interested in purchasing angora wool from us, please contact us for more information. We mix angora wool with various types of wool to make yarn.
We currently have 11 angora rabbits. 3 Germans (2 red eyed white and 1 black), 4 French (two red-eyed white and 2 torte/red) and 4 English (2 black, 1 blue and 1 broken chocolate). Our angoras have come from Charm City Angora (French), Trinity Farm (French), Multi Florarose farm (English) and Spinning Beauties (Germans). We are continuing to work with other farms and rabbitries in order to add other lines and colors to our angora, with the hopes of bringing you the best quality wool from these three types.
In addition, our sons raise their own sets of rabbits: Mini Rexes and Lionheads. Please check out their links to see their personal rabbitry pages! Our daughter and I recently decided to partner together in raising lop rabbits. Her favorites are Holland lops and I plan to add mini lops and possibly French lops.
Our breeding program is small, offering just 1 or 2 litters of each breed per year. Each rabbit is not bred more than 2 times a year and if we feel they need a break, then they are only bred one time a year. First and foremost, these rabbits are our pets and we love them dearly. My kids and I spend at least 2 times a day with the rabbits, grooming, feeding, cleaning and playing with them in the rabbit room. Each one holds a special place in our hearts. They are not kept outside, but have their own special place in our basement. They have an exercise space, where they are let out to run around for exercise throughout the week. Their room and cages are cleaned several times a week. Each family that takes in one of our bunnies must assure us that they will provide a safe and loving environment for them, whether they are kept inside or outside. We also do not sell bunnies for meat. Our goal is to provide rabbits for pet, show, wool and companionship. If for any reason a person cannot keep our bunnies, we will gladly take them back.
