A Message from Sliver Pond Farm (Rabbits)


We are a major grower of Californian and New Zealand White commercial meat rabbits in Ohio. We are a member of the American Rabbit Breeders Association (ARBA).  The rabbitry is registered and recognized by the ARBA and specializes in support of 4H and FFA Fair projects whether for meat pen, single fryers or show animals. Our breeding program is set to support all County Fairs. The rabbitry consists of over 200 breeding does supported by over 40 breeding bucks. We typically house well over 1000 rabbits. Sliver Pond is a full service rabbitry being a grower, buyer and processor of unwanted rabbits for our meat business. Visit our websites at www.sliverpond.com, www.marketrabbits.com, www.ohiomeatrabbits.com or www.californianrabbits.com for more information.
