The hemp is almost ready for harvest. The babies bunnies are going to their new homes. Another summer winds down as even the crickets sound tired of the heat.
Our latest litter of Continental Giant Rabbits born August 10th are just the sweetest litter yet. Not to dis our Flemish babies but I am so smitten with Continentals. They are so personable… so relatable. These guys had just eaten then went and got cozy.
Our family began beekeeping six years ago and began an unending adventure. Among all the other thing we have learned, we realized bees need flowering plants 10 months a year. To enrich our rocky east Tennessee soil and appease Lulu and Arlo, our children who have begged for bunnies for many years, we bought two flemish giant rabbits. Quickly thereafter, we accidentally became Giant Bunny Breeders. We learned the trade over the first year with our Flemish Giants and have since become enamored with Continental giants and more recently French Lops as well. Giant rabbits are wonderfully funny and sweet pets, and the fertilizer they produce keeps the blooms for bees going for most of the year. We leave an acre of our property wild to allow a buffer habitat for wild species of plants and animals (like milkweed, raccoons and foxes). Our Livestock Guard dogs, Aphrodite and Freyr, keep the wildlife out of the bunny yard. All of our rabbits are vet checked and vaccinated. We handle them daily and start litter box training at weaning.
Following the bees has led us to numerous flourishing, beautiful endeavors that inspire us to mimic the art we see in our little farm. From our home to yours, in addition to giant rabbits we also offer organic produce, honey, seasonal homemade pastries and canned goods, natural cosmetic oils, botanicals and occasionally, artwork and hemp… all free of anything that might harm our planet, children or you. I work with transporters on a monthly basis who traverse the country to deliver bunnies for a fee. Contact me by phone, text or email if you have questions about any of our products.
