WELCOME TO OUR RABBITRY!
PopeRabbitry.com is the centerpiece of our larger operation here at Pope Farms. We reside in Homer, Georgia located in Banks County, in the heart of NE Georgia. We operate an 11-acre farm that houses animals such as: kunekune pigs, bronze turkeys, rabbits and various breeds of chickens. At Pope Rabbitry, we specialize in raising and breeding New Zealand rabbits for your homestead needs. We raise various colors, such as: white, black, grey, smoke, and agouti. In addition, we also raise Holland Lop/New Zealand cross rabbits in a variety of different colors and patterns.
Our rabbits receive continuous hands-on care from birth until adopted by their new family. Our rabbits each live in colony systems, with over 300+ sq ft, which gives them lots of space to live freely. The kits (baby rabbits) remain with their mothers in the colony until they reach 8-weeks of age, and then they are moved to grow-out hutches.
Our New Zealand rabbits are the perfect meat rabbit for your homestead needs. Our rabbits reach 5lbs (a perfect fryer size) at 8-weeks of age, and reach a mature weight of 8-12 lbs. With a short 30-day gestation period, having a buck and two doe's can net your family upwards of 1200 lbs. of meat per year!
Our Holland Lops rabbits are bred with two specific and different and unique traits in mind. The first is the size of our rabbits. Unlike a normal Holland Lop rabbit that reaches a mature size of 3-4 lbs. our rabbits will reach a mature weight of 6-8 lbs on average. In addition to breeding a larger rabbit, we have bred specialized rabbits with heterochromia eyes. This means that most of our rabbits are born with 1 brown eye color and 1 crystal blue eye color [Click For Pictures]. It gives our rabbits a very unique look that will set your rabbit apart from others. Another added benefit of our cross-breeding program, is that our rabbits maintain the mild temperament of a small Holland Lop, making these rabbits very friendly.
