How did we get to become CHEROKEE FLATS
Cherokee Flats was originally Cody's Rabbit Cave and was started by Cody in 2004 as a 4 H project for McLean County, IL. Since then, we've moved from Bloomington, IL to Rural Farmer City, IL and have added many breeds or rabbits and added poultry. Since Austin was now old enough to show in 4H and Brian and I were wanting to show in ARBA shows, we decided to change the name to Cherokee Flats in 2007. After years of trying to find the breeds we wanted the most, we finally have it down to CHOCOLATE SATINS, Netherland Dwarf and MINI LOPS.
