Back Forty Rabbitry

UPDATED 6-17-16

We are now on Facebook  

Hello, our family (my husband, me, and our 3 children) have a small rabbitry located in north central Wisconsin.  We were officially established in 2006 although I have had rabbits as pets and 4h projects for about 30 years, since I was very small.
I've had many different shapes and sizes of rabbits through the years. My first rabbit was an opal Rex and I have always had at least 1 Mini Rex in my barn  since the early 1990's.  They are my favorites and I have the most of them. 
The Mini Rex varieties we are working on include black, blue, broken also occasionally chocolate, lilac, tricolor, otter and himalayan.
we also have Polish in Black, Chocolate and broken.
 Dutch in black and grey. 
Also a few Holland Lops (solids and brokens) in Tortoise (black and blue) and  orange .
The children show in Youth classes at our local fair and 4h shows and at a few ARBA shows.
 The rabbits are used to being handled since day 1.
