Own a show rabbit. Many people and businesses purchase cattle, horses and sometimes other livestock for enjoyment and promotion. We’re offering the chance for people to own a show rabbit – without the work involved. You pay a flat fee to start which covers our cost for equipment use and the rabbit. There is a monthly board fee of $30 which covers feed & basic care, and there are entry and a portion of transportation fees for going to shows. This may be $60-75 for a national show, but typically under $10 for regional shows. You’ll learn about rabbits, about food and take an active part in learning. You might even earn a little money back if you later decide to breed the animals you own. Learn a new appreciation for these animals and for agriculture.

He’ll have food, shelter, comfortable bed and familiar toys and regular medical care. This is a custom situation – ask us if interested.

Sponsorships allow for building/expansion *and* provide food for those who need it.
A Box – As a means of helping others with a hand up sponsoring a box of food gets produce, meats and other food into the home of someone in need. This might be a military family or single parent with unexpected expenses that cuts into their food budget. $50
A Garden – Sponsoring a garden is an option we created for several reasons. It’s a smaller area that is designed to give to others. It also is an option for memorials for loved ones lost that gives food to others as a means of continuing to make a difference. This option gives a small garden space for donation to others over an entire season rather than a box of food. Seed, raised bed area grown and food provided to those in need. Donation also provides eggs for those in need too. This is a way to help a season’s produce to help others. $350
Sponsor a Poultry Breed– Many people love animals but don’t have a way to keep them. With our sponsorship program it makes it possible to get our foundation birds started as quickly as possible. There will be several options within this. $45 Choose from:
Royal Palm, Bourbon Red, Black Spanish, Naragansett turkey turkeys
Ancona, Welsh Harlequin, Cayuga, Campbell ducks
Brahma, Plymouth rock, white wyandottes, brown/colored egg layer chicks
Brown leghorn,White Leghorn, white egg layer chicks
Pilgrim, Pomeranian, Cotton Patch, Shetland geese
The cost of heritage poultry does vary with species – it’s not uncommon for turkeys and goslings to be $10 each and, as large growing birds they eat quite a bit! Initially this will be starting foundation animals in a smaller setting, allowing to grow for productive members of our ‘team.’ All poultry sponsors will get an email copy of “Getting By: Lessons From a Rural Past”. Heritage sponsors are a great way to remember someone who loves antiques as they are living antiques, tracing back 100 years or more.
Sponsor a Rabbit – Sponsoring a rare breed rabbit can be a way to learn more about these fascinating creatures. American Chinchilla and Giant Chinchilla are both on the list with the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy. Your sponsorship helps feed and shelter a show or breeding animal (not a meat rabbit although some of his/her offspring may be sold as fryers). Among the projects this year are designing and constructing 4’x8′ raised hutches, allowing much more room for our large rabbits than standard cages. This is especially important for our “working does” with a litter. $30
