Ivory Farms started with Flemish Giant rabbits, guinea pigs, chickens, and pigeons. The rabbit and guinea pig manure were ideal for mixing with carbons like cardboard, paper, leaves, kitchen scraps, and yard waste to raise composting worms. The composting worms, in turn, make worm casting that we turn onto warm tea – a component that gardeners and hydroponic stores treasure. He also supplier animals for petting zoos and worm bins to big businesses like the Seaquest Aquarium chain.
In addition to supplying zoos and businesses, we have also provided pets to a household. Flemish Giant Rabbits turned out to be ideal pets and people will drive hundreds of miles to get one or two. These days, we raise around 10 to 15 litters of Flemish Giant rabbits per year, letting them roam around in large dog kennel runs so they have plenty of room to hop and be happy.
We also make a point of raising them on concrete floors to keep their nails trimmed and prevent digging which prepares them to be good house pets.
Our President & Founder David Jones makes a special caring for all animals. The rabbits, for example, get Templeton high protein rabbit food, mixed with Jones’ special improvements such as calf manna, fried mulberry leaves with mulberries and a variety of healthy native plants. They also are fed on grass hay and fresh greens daily. And those looking for that perfect blend of healthy food can purchase the rabbits to chew to maintain their teeth. But its certainly not just rabbits and worms here. If you visit Ivory Farms, and we recommend that you do,
you will see a massive 20-square foot chicken coop with a half dozen eggs-laying hens, a few ducks and a couple of roosters. By far the most exquisite plumage belongs to the blue peacocks that strut around the farms and fan their glorious tails.
Together David & Dawn raise plants for an annual plant sale as well as rescue and keep bees with the help of a few pest control companies who care enough to donate swarms instead of killing them. As well as taking in and sparing bees, the farm also keeps attracting cats. Ivory farms work with Stanislaus Cate Network to get the cats spayed and neutered and collect kittens that they hide around. They strike to find great homes for them – so if you need a let cat or a barn cat, make sure to reach out.
Ivory Farms is part of the OMTSystems group. We committed to an environmentalist mission and utilize Ivory Farms to connect with people and introduce them to important environmental problems that they might not otherwise consider.
We also now started a nonprofit organization that teaches at schools and online about Making Earth Great Again – Recycling. The board of directors continues to expand nonprofit projects like collecting cardboard and restaurant and diary waste and expanding the worm composting to ease the burden of garbage for our country. We have even patented our ice-to-gray-water recycling machine called the Water Reclamation Cannister to sell to restaurants, schools, and hospitals.
