The Adorable Bunny Farm In Illinois Your Whole Family Will Love
With spring in the air and Easter on the way, you might be seeing a plethora of rabbit-related items in the stores, on TV, and in every other part of your life. If you’re down with this cute craze, there’s a bunny farm in Staunton, Illinois you absolutely must visit.
Your whole family will love a trip to this unique attraction. Check it out:
Henry's Rabbit Ranch is a roadside attraction along Route 66 in southern Illinois, just outside St. Louis, that is a must-visit for the entire family. In business since 1995, it is best known for its bunny farm, visitors center, and vintage artifacts.
If you really love history, you'll want to stop by this one-of-a-kind attraction. It was introduced to the Route 66 Hall of Fame in 2012 and is itself a museum of memorabilia that includes old cars, like Volkswagen Rabbits, a classic filling station, antique signs, and much more.
The VW Rabbits are arranged with their back ends sticking up out of the ground like bunny buts.
Of course, the most unique and absolutely adorable thing you'll find here is the bunny farm, better known as a rabbit ranch at this establishment. What began as just a couple of rabbits in an apartment quickly turned into a whole family of bunnies that now live at this wonderful place.
Everything else at Henry's Rabbit Ranch is built up around the bunny farm. The critters are not for sale, but you can come and visit them for one of the best animal encounters outside of a zoo.
Some of the rabbits have even been trained to do tricks when visitors stop by. Come see what these cute little guys can do.
Also on site is a giant jackrabbit for guests to climb on and take pictures. This massive structure alone makes this roadside attraction worth stopping for.
Near the giant rabbit are tiny little graves of former rabbit residents who were dearly loved and who will never be forgotten by this bunny farm. There is even a page on its website (link below) honoring its bunnies who are no longer with us.
Henry's Rabbit Ranch does not list its business hours online at this time. Call ahead or email before arriving.
Henry’s Rabbit Ranch is located at 1107 Historic Old Rte. 66, Staunton, IL 62088, and you can learn more about it on its
website or Facebook page.
