Giant Chinchilla rabbit
The Giant Chinchilla was originally developed in 1921 by Edward H. Stahl of Holmes Park, Missouri. Stahl was one of the first to own a Chinchilla rabbit, and he wanted to breed a large animal for commercial success in the fur business. True to their name, Giant Chinchillas are quite large, with mature bucks weighing in at 12 to 15 pounds and does at 13 to 16 pounds. It is the only breed in America that is judged for its commercial value, with meat producing qualities given top consideration on the judging table. There are fewer than 200 annual North American registrations of the breed, and the global population is less than 2,000.
Our small farm has grown out of a desire to bring fresh real food to people. Without the help of family or a bank for financial and moral support we decided that since we could not buy a farm we would rent land and turn it into a farm. Which is what we did. (more...)
