What is Peacebunny Island?
After hearing about a Northern Minnesota barn fire two years ago, Caleb Smith adopted homeless angora rabbits into his thriving bunny business to share hugs and hoppiness with senior citizens. Because angora fur grows one inch each month, “Peacebunny Island” rabbitry provides gentle haircuts four times a year with clippings to be commercially spun into “HEARTfelt” brand yarns (Humane, Eco-friendly, American-Raised Textiles). Every ounce of angora fur he collects or buys from humane sources over a 15 year contract has a guaranteed purchase, destined for top fashion designers who had pulled this luxury yarn from their lines in 2015 after documented animal cruelty overseas. With champion bloodlines, eager investors, a humane model, and a growing farm network across the country, this kid-run business continues to multiply, just like the rabbits.
