The Story of Enchanted Valley Rabbitry
Mike was a rabbit raiser since he was a young kid. He raised meat rabbits on the family farm and was instructed by his dad, a dairy farmer, and like most farmers of his days, he was also a small livestock raiser. Mike's family raised thousands of chickens, ducks, geese, guinea fowl and rabbits. Income from this small livestock provided extra cash for the holidays and getting those extra "for fun" things. There was many a western Dane county table, that was graced with a Christmas goose that came from the Statz farm. Mike and Laurie kept raising rabbits and some poultry after they were married. When our three sons, Chris, Nick and Barry got into the rabbit project
in 4-H, we acquired our first pedigreed rabbits.
First it was New Zealand Whites, then Rex, next came Satins and lastly Californians.
Enchanted Valley Rabbitry had small beginnings as our boys
Boys interests change and so has our rabbitry.
We inherited these rabbits from our children. As the kids slowly lost interest in rabbits we decided to cut back to the two breeds that we just couldn't live without, Rex and Satin.
In 1997 we registered our rabbitry name with the A.R.B.A.
Shortly after that we began intensely breeding for improvements in our Satins, when we took the Satins to open competition. In 2001 our youngest son gave up showing and we are currently working to bring the
Rex up to the challenge of open competition.
On a National level
we have these accomplishments to speak for us.
