Its nice to have you here!
A BIT ABOUT US
We are a small scale farm that raises rabbits for meat and for show. We raise four different varieties of rabbits and have show and pet quality rabbits available on occasion. We are always striving to improve our lines of rabbits to the standard of perfection set by the American Rabbit Breeders Association.
Our farm of two acres is nestled at the foot of Long Butte between Bend and Redmond in beautiful Central Oregon. Teckelhut Acres has been in business since 1986.
The Trans Am Ranch
The Trans Am Ranch is home to early Third Generation Pontiac Firebird Trans Ams that we have collected over the years. If you need help with or parts for your Firebird we can assist you with that. The Trans Am Ranch is also home to Central Oregon first replica of the Knight Industries Two Thousand (K.I.T.T.) from the hit TV series "Knight Rider". KITT is available for viewing or rent for events. The Trans Am Ranch has been in business since 2015.

Breeds of Rabbits we have to offer2>
Dutch Rabbits: Dutch rabbits are a step above dwarf rabbits. They mature to between 4 to 5 1/2 pounds. Their destinct markings remind one of a Boston Terrier dog. They have a very laid back easy going personality that makes them a perfect pet for young and old alike. Always curious and easy to train, they are the perfect starter rabbit for a first time rabbit owner.
Polish Rabbits: What can you say bad about this dwarf breed? Nothing. Maturing to between 2 1/2 to 3 1/2 pounds they are the perfect breed for anyone. Non bitters. Even tempered. Easy to train. Low maintainance. Just the sweetest dwarf rabbit there is. The perfect pet or show animal for children.
New Zealand Rabbits: We have the much sought after Manuel lines. The New Zealand has been the "go to" rabbit for years for meat production. Maturing to between 8 and 12 pounds they are easy keepers and breeders. They have large litters and are excellent mothers. I have been in the rabbit breeding business for several years now. I have tried other commercial breeds but none of them could hold a match to the New Zealands when it comes to meat production. That is why I am back with the breed again.
Velveteen Lops: The Velveteen Lop is a newer rabbit breed that was actually named after the famous rabbit in The Velveteen Rabbit, a children’s story by Margery Williams. The breed has been available since 1990. The Velveteen has a mandolin body type with Mini Rex fur which causes the rabbit to feel like a plush toy. They have lop ears and weigh between 5 and 9 pounds. They are spunky, affectionate, playful, calm, docile, social, and friendly. While this breed is not recognized by ARBA as of yet, they can be shown in ARBA shows under the experimental class. These make great outdoor or indoor (house) rabbits and are a proud addition to my rabbitry.
