Silver Fox Rabbits

Diet

After much thought and careful research, we have chosen to feed our rabbits a natural  (non-pelleted) diet, much of which I grow in my garden. Rabbits are herbivores and eat mainly greens, grains and roots. The more exact way we feed deserves its own post(s) but it suffices to say that our rabbits eat organic fodder alternated with an organic grain mix and lots of high quality hay. This staple is supplemented by other organic greens, mangle beets, raspberry canes and grape vines, sunflower seeds, small amounts of fresh fruit etc. This way of feeding lends not only to the health of the rabbit, but also to the clean, grass-fed taste of the meat. The rabbits drink alkalinized water with organic apple cider vinegar. We “worm” with Molly’s herbal (however rabbits over vermicomposters are “wormed” with grapefruit seed extract). Any treatments necessary are done with herbs, homeopathics, or other holistic remedies.

If you do choose to feed a pelleted feed, Sherwood Forest Natural Rabbit food provides a superior pellet. it s the freshest I have found. You may order by clicking the link below.

Housing

Our rabbits are housed in indoor, climate controlled conditions under full spectrum lights. In February of 2013, the rabbitry was re-vamped to include new larger, vertical cages allowing the rabbits the ability to “climb” and rest on carpeted shelving. Kits are moved to the maternity units to finish growing.  In good weather, weaned kits finish growing outdoors in “rabbit tractors” with full access to clover. The new rabbitry is complete with vermi-composting bins under all cages. We are very excited about our new design (I’m sure the bunnies are happy too)! Thank you to our wonderful friends, father and son team, Greg and Brian Moore for their impeccable work!

The rabbitry is kept scrupulously clean with “green” cleaning products only. These include Shaklee Basic G and Basic H. There is one exception. We use a small amount of Vanodine for cleaning feeders, crocks, and water bottles.

Sale Information

A $25 per pedigreed rabbit, non-refundable deposit is required to hold the requested rabbit(s). For a non-pedigreed rabbit, the non-refundable deposit is $20.  If you would like to make arrangements for payment other than pay pal, please email the specifics of how you wish to pay through the Contact page of this web site. Below is the Pay pal link so that you can pay your deposit. Once the deposit is received, that rabbit(s) is reserved for you. Receipt of the balance of the purchase price allows you to take possession of the rabbit. In the event that you elect to have the rabbit shipped to you via air, then the full purchase price and the shipping fee must be paid at least two weeks prior to shipping.

Rabbits are normally available for pick-up at eight weeks old. When your rabbit(s) are ready for pick-up, you will receive notification requesting that you set up a time within the next 7 days to pick up your rabbit(s). If you do not pick up your rabbit(s) within the 7 day period, your rabbit(s) will be sold to the next waiting customer, and your deposit forfeited. We are strict about pick-up times.

If Monte al Mare Farm is unable to fulfill your request or if upon arrival the rabbit(s) do not meet your satisfaction, we will return your deposit(s) minus $1.00 (administrative pay pal fees) per rabbit.

Shipping

Rabbits will be shipped via air for the additional charge of $350.00. The fee of $350.00 covers shipping and handling, air fare, crate, and time and expense to and from the airport. The airport is approximately 130 miles round trip. On occasion, health certificates are required. These are furnished at an extra fee of $35.00. This price may also vary owing to the volatility of fuel prices.

When ordering, consider that two rabbits can be shipped in the same crate for one fee. Rabbits will be shipped via Continental Airlines as they have a reputation in the industry for outstanding performance. They are not the least expensive, but the quality of the service they provide is definitely worth the extra money!

No Guarantees

All of our rabbits are healthy at the time of sale. The buyer should carefully inspect each rabbit to insure that it meets their expectations. This should include verification of the sex. There are no guarantees once the rabbit has left the premises. Neither health nor longevity is guaranteed. Representation concerning the animal(s) at the time of sale is as accurate as is possible. It is always better to pose any questions concerning the rabbit(s) prior to purchase. It is our policy to answer all questions. Once you have taken possession of the rabbit, we cannot be responsible for health issues or injuries. No guarantee is made regarding the ability of any rabbit to be a winner in competitions.

Any pure bred rabbit originating from Monte al Mare Farm (ARBA #D495) must permanently retain our rabbitry name as part of the rabbits name.
