How We Got Started.
We Started our Rabbitry raising Californian Rabbits and
a couple other breeds in April 2002 at our home in Cleveland Texas, and have grown to about 100 rabbits at this time.
Nothing was planned we went to pick up a belt buckle we had ordered, at a trophy and awards business and
they also raised rabbits. Well shall I say anymore! except that we not only came home with a belt buckle, we came home
with the beginning of our rabbitry. They were two black Dutch Rabbits and a beautiful blue Dutch Rabbit. Then some
really good friends, that have a local family business here in Cleveland, Texas, bought a couple of meat pens from our county
show, and donated them to us. This was our first introduction to Californian Rabbits, which has turned out to be
our breed of choice! We have a few Mini Rex, Dutch, and a few Holland lops, but Californians, are our speciality.
They are Awesome Rabbits!
We showed our Californian Rabbits for the first time at our county
show, and to our surprise!, won "Grand
Champion Meat Pen 2003"!!!!! We couldn't believe it, our first time to show a Meat Pen and our first show
ever, and we got Grand. Even though we were in shock, it felt so good that all that hard work, late nights, worring about
babies being born, worring and trying to figure out who to breed to who, and etc., had paid off.
J and R Rabbit Farm plans to continue striving for perfection, having a strong
culling system. Constantly improving our Californian line of rabbits with each thought, each decision,
and each cull that is made."We will settle for no less than the best".
Another thing we strive to do, is be there for others. If you get a
Californian Rabbit from J and R Rabbit Farm, or you get 10 Californian Rabbits from us, or maybe none, you just
need help or information, we will do everything in our power to help you, and hope you will leave J and R Rabbit Farm
as another friend we can put on our long list of friends.
Update as of 2006 We
no longer have Dutch Rabbits, Holland Lop Rabbits, or Mini Rex Rabbits. We have such a nice line of Californian Rabbits that
we decided to only specialize in the Californian Rabbits. If you can not find the other rabbits let us know and maybe we know
someone that can help you. Just email us and we will try to help you find them.
Our goal is to improve our Californian Line of Rabbits with each generation, and try to meet the Breed Standard
of the Californian Rabbit to the best that it can be met. Our Rabbitry, located in Cleveland,Texas, is in the
growth stage of developement. Our goals are to meet the needs of all the rabbit markets, pet rabbit market, show rabbit market,
meat pen rabbit market, meat rabbit market, and breading stock rabbit market. We hope to promote the fun and exciting
world of rabbit raising, that is steadly increasing in popularity, no matter if you have one rabbit for a pet, or if you plan
to start your own rabbitry, you will be glad that you did.
