Yesterday, we took the trek to Taunton, MA to the Evergreen Farm, an internationally recognized rabbit farm, to pick up the girl and boy Giant Angoras we purchased from Louise Walsh, owner of the farm. She has been breeding for over forty years and owner operator of the Evergreen Farm for over thirty of those years. Louise is the creator of the largest wool bearing type of rabbit in the world to date. The Giant Angora.
Over the years, thousands of people have passed through her barn doors, from all over the world and have purchased her wooly residents. In the past, her facility has housed over 7,000 rabbits at one time and she has shipped her rabbit's worldwide and imported rabbits the same way.
Louise and her husband have been honored to have been the subject of articles written about their endeavors in such publications as Yankee Magazine and featured in both regional and international publications. They have also been the subject of educational TV and seen on both local and national TV programs.
She is the creator of the only ARBA (AMERICAN RABBIT BREEDERS ASSOCIATION) recognized Giant Angora Rabbit.
After a lengthy visit with Louise, talking about the Rhinebeck, NY Sheep and Wool Festival, where we initially met her, we talked bunny for sometime, then covered upcoming events...in fact, a New England Wool Festival in April and others she will attend. We told her we might see her there.
