Bergere de France has selected French Angora Rabbit Farms which are CRUELTY FREE and Enviromenatlly friendly.
The Farms are CAREGORA certified, which means that animal welfare standards are respected: the animals are only sheared 3/4 times a year either with electric clippers or by hand with scissors.
In these conditions, the rabbits get the best attention and are not traumatised. They are left with approximately 1cm of residual fur so they do not feel the cold when outdoor temps drop.
