of River Bard Rabbits
We love the Flemish Giant not only for their size, beauty and calm temperaments, but also for their intelligence and inquisitive personality.
We bought our first Flemish giants as pets, and then our children began showing their Flemishes in 4-H shows. As our interest and knowledge of the breed grew, thanks to the generous advice, guidance and foundation breeding stock from some of New England's best breeders, we decided to start the slow and thoughtful process of establishing a breeding program focused on correct color, conformation, and improving the breed. In 2021, you will find us back at local and regional ARBA shows with some of our Flemish.
We maintain a waitlist for any rabbits that may become available to pet, show, or breeding homes. All homes will be carefully screened, as Flemish Giants have special requirements (and we love our bunnies!) We will not have many available, as we breed for for showing conformation. Rabbits that don't meet show standards are occasionally available as pets, and will not be issued pedigrees. Right now you can see a few of our favorites below. We are currently breeding fawn, sandy, blue, black, and light gray.
We also build custom Flemish Giant sized hutches in our farm's wood shop, as we had difficulty finding just the right housing for a giant rabbit breed. Please let us know if you need an extra-large hutch for your rabbit.
**Sorry, we don't ever ship rabbits. This is much too stressful for them, and many won't survive a long journey**
