Our journey began 3-1/2 years ago when Allen won a pair of Beverens in a local rabbit show's raffle, one black and one blue. It turned out that Marna had already had an interest in the breed, but never acted on trying to get a pair. I guess it must have been fate because very shortly afterward, the only breeder of Beverens in New England was selling out. Without hesitation, we bought all she had - black, blue and a brown. Later we obtained a beautiful trio of blue-eyed whites, thus completing the foundation for what is now known as Mesick & Johnson, Ltd. We have been successfully breeding and showing them ever since. We are devoted to promoting the Beveren in the U.S. and abroad and enjoy sharing this unique and charismatic breed with others.
