We raise American Chinchilla rabbits and Rex rabbits for meat. The American Chinchilla is a heritage rabbit breed with a gorgeous gray ticked coat, similar in color to the actual Chinchilla in the rodent family. We are just starting our Rex program with a single harlequin buck and two does – a beautiful black otter and a tort. The Rex breed has an extra-soft luxurious coat and makes a great pet as well! Both our breeds do well with a combination of commercial and foraged diet. In the past we raised French Angora rabbits for fiber. We do not have any Angoras available at this time, but I still have fiber for sale.
We feed our rabbits high quality pellets, whole non-GMO grains, and local orchard grass hay as well as foraged greens from our property which includes grass, plantain, dandelion, and willow. No hormones, antibiotics, or other medications are used.
Angora Fiber $8 per ounce sheared or $10 per ounce plucked/combed
The photos below are of our past rabbits including Creme d’Argents. I highly recommend the Creme d’Argent breed and hope I can add them back to our farm when we build our new barn (someday!).
