We are a small, 46 hole, rabbitry located in Farmer City, IL in DeWitt County IL. We are approx 2.5 hours south of Chicago and 2.5 hours NE of St. Louis, MO, 30 mins NW of Champaign/Urbana and 30 mins SE of Bloomington/Normal, 1 Hr E of Springfield making it easy to get to. We breed quality Mini Lops in a variety of colors, New Zealands in White and Red, English Spots in Black, Blue, Chocolate and Gold, Satins in Black, Broken, & Chocolate. All rabbits are of excellent lines and have excellent temperament. All of our babies are handled from birth to ensure they are socialized and ready for new families.
Our customers range from other rabbit breeders to 4H and FFA members to families with special needs children. They have travelled from as far as Indiana, California, Iowa and Missouri to as close as right here in Bloomington, Normal, Champaign/Urbana, Pontiac and Farmer City. Many of our special needs families have children that would normally not be able to have pets. Because our rabbits are socialized from birth and handled Mulitple times every day, they make EXCELLENT companions.
Our rabbitry is thoroughly cleaned once a month and cages cleaned weekly. All rabbits are groomed daily and allowed out (individually) to run in one of rabbit runs during nice weather. When feeding time comes, all bowls are washed in warm, soapy water before being refilled with fresh food. We feed once daily approx 4 oz. We try to spoil them as much as possible.
Our rabbits aren't just our breeders or show rabbits. They are part of the family and are treated as such. We want homes for our rabbits that will treat them as we do. We want to make sure that they are well taken care of and spoiled as much as possible.
