Newzealandreds.com is a small, family-run rabbitry located in the foothills of the Southern Sierra Nevada. We specialize in breeding New Zealand reds for show, replacement stock, and the dinner table.
I started raising rabbits while in college as a diversion to coping with cancer. I enjoyed the comical antics of my mini lops, who zigzagged through the backyard kicking up their back feet in joy. Now, as I approach retirement age, I have decided on raising America's original domesticated rabbit: the New Zealand red. Reds are friendly, good mothers, fast growers, and healthy. We limit our breeding barn to 6-8 breeding does and do not breed during the warm San Joaquin Valley summers. We strive to produce the best reds possible. We are focused on developing three separate breeding lines: the Mark red line; Max red line; and the Loverboy broken line. Most of the rabbits in our breeding barn are now fourth or fifth generation based on the our original foundation stock from Manuel Hidalgo.
We show our rabbits at the West Coast Classic in Reno, the KCRBA January show in Bakersfield, and the ARBA National Convention, when it is on the West Coast.
