Kaninchen Farm

Working to live a more sustainable lifestyle.

Welcome

Welcome to Kaninchen Farm. We are a small hobby farm in Kalamazoo, MI. We currently raise Silver Fox rabbits though we have raised French Angora, Palomino, and Rex in the past. Check out our Blog, the Activities pages, and the FAQs. We've also got some printables and helpful articles. Have a look around and feel free to use the About Us & Contact Us page to send us an email with any questions or comments you may have. 

You can also keep up with the latest news on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/KaninchenFarm/

Please be sure to read our sales policy as well. You can find it below.
 
April 2018 Update:
We do not currently have kits available.

We have been making sure that we comply with the Generally Accepted Agriculture and Management Practices (GAAMPS). GAAMPS are a voluntary list of practices intended to give animals adequate care and to provide for their well being. These GAAMPS provide scientifically backed guidelines for the care of each species of animal. While we've complied with GAAMPS for a while, we decided to share about each of them and how we apply them to our farm. They're a bit like our standard operating procedures and will give you valuable insight into how our produce, eggs, and animals are raised. Please click on the pages about Rabbits, Chickens, and Quail to learn more about how we raise them. You can also find more about the other GAAMPS on the GAAMPS page

Please don't feel overwhelmed looking at these GAAMPS, especially if you are a new breeder. Remember, these are voluntary. Our systems and practices didn't just happen into being, they were carefully thought out and evolved over time with trial and error. My hope is that by sharing them with you, you will have a better insight into how we run our mini farm, learn more about our techniques and quality, and that maybe you will find something you can apply to your homestead too. 

Don't forget to get a copy of our basic rabbit care sheet over in the Files section.

We are branching out from just rabbits and are getting more into homestead education. I will be teaching a few classes this year on preserving, rain gardens, plant science for kids, and gardening in general. If you're interested in keeping up with what I am offering when subscribe below for updates.

We are doing a seedling and plant sale this year. Get a copy of our pre-order form here. All of our seedlings are open-pollinated and/or heirloom varieties. Select varieties are certified organic seed grown in certified organic soil. Our plants vary. All of them are non-GMO. Seedlings will be ready May 19th - June 10th.

Sales Policy

We do not sell pets. If you want a pet rabbit, please look elsewhere.
We do not ship rabbits, but may be able to let you know of any upcoming rabbit transports available.
We do not stud out our bucks for biosecurity reasons.
We do not accept checks or cards. Cash or Paypal only.
Rabbitry visits are not allowed for the safety of my rabbits and my family. Sales will take place at public locations in Kalamazoo, MI.
As always, we (or anyone else), cannot guarantee an animals show success or mothering ability.
By purchasing a rabbit from us, you are agreeing to our sales policy and terms.

Deposit
We require a 50% non-refundable deposit on rabbits made by cash, money order, or paypal. The remaining 50% is due upon acceptance of the rabbit.

Health
All rabbits will be guaranteed healthy at the time of sale. This means that all rabbits will have passed all of their recent health checks along with their check given the day of sale. If a problem does develop, especially within the first 7 days, call or email us immediately, and not after the rabbit has died. Even if it is a couple of months down the line, call us and we will be happy to share our experience with you.

Pick Up
Cage space is limited so all rabbits must be picked up within 2 weeks of deposit unless other arrangements have been made (pick up via upcoming show, etc). If you do not pick up your rabbit after 2 weeks, the rabbit will be listed for sale again. The exception is kits. Kits will be available no earlier than 8 weeks of age. If you are getting a duo or trio arrangements may be made to hold the earlier kit until all are ready for pick up.

Transports
We occasionally do rabbit transports. If that is the case, we charge a $10 rabbit transport fee per head.

Pedigree
All rabbits sold by Kaninchen Farm will come with a 3-generation pedigree. Rabbits also come with a starter bag of our current rabbit feed for transition. Please see our Files & Links page to download a copy of our rabbit care basics sheet.
