Cherokee Flats was origionally Cody's Rabbit Cave and was started by Cody in 2004 as a 4-h Project. We started with a beautiful pair of Chocolate Dutch from Andrew Craig of Bloomington IL. Since then, we have added other breeds and focus mainly on the Mini Lops but have Netherland Dwarfs and Californians as well. We also moved to the country in Aug 2006. We love showing our rabbits and educating people on proper care.
