At Wimberly Farm, we believe it is important how we treat the animals under our care. Wimberly Farm is named after my grandfather's cattle farm. I remember growing up and watching all of his cows run to him when he did his daily checks because he treated each with one such kindness and respect. One cow he was particularly fond of, he refused to sell and I watched as this beautiful black angus cow turned completely grey with old age. With his spirit in mind, we take into account not only what will keep our rabbits healthy, but also what will keep them happy. We take the responsibility of keeping rabbits seriously and hope that helps us provide healthier and happier rabbits for you!
All of our does are bred at a pace that is best for them. We know sometimes this means we miss a sell or customers may have to wait for a bunny, but we hope you understand and have some patience for our sweet does so they can continue enjoying being moms and we can continue providing quality buns cared for by does that are fat, happy, and well-rested.
We believe that rabbits can be wonderful pets and useful farm additions. Our rabbits serve a few purposes for us. They provide manure to fertilize our plants, little bunnies to offer to you all, and a few smiles throughout our day as we get to notice their unique personalities and silly antics.
All of our rabbits are housed on the ground. They are free to dig and roll around in the dirt beneath them. Some seem to enjoy digging holes to keep cool, others like to redecorate their space every so often, moving dirt, hay, and rocks wherever they please. Almost all of our rabbits are housed with a buddy, another rabbit they are bonded with.
All our rabbits receive attention each day. We think this consistency makes their interactions with us more enjoyable and helps each bun we send off enjoy human interaction. We know that a friendly rabbit is more likely to stay the favorite family pet.
