Copper Star Farm Miniature 
& Standard Donkeys LLC.
Fairfield, Pennsylvania
Going Against The Grain Since 2005

Welcome to Copper Star Miniature Donkeys
The miniature donkeys are raised by Emily Hoponick. Copper Star Farm's vision is to breed donkeys with correct conformation, various colors, sweet personalities, and a high pedigree. The Copper Star herd has moved and is now located in scenic Fairfield, PA. You will not find a herd of such quality, conformation, and pedigree in the tri-state area.               

We specialize in donkeys with:
~Solid colors with impeccable conformation & high pedigree.

~Black nlp/lp donkeys with blue eye dilute gene.

~Red&White spot / Fully Frosted White / Red breeding program.

~We have started our woolly breeding program since our winters are harsh on the mountain.

~We have exotic colors such as blue-black/fully frosted red/blue roan, tri-color spot & IVORY.  

We are now located at the new farm in Fairfield, 
PA right over the Emmitsburg, MD border. 

We do "pasture breed" our donkeys. 


If you would like to come visit and to see our outstanding stock please contact or give me a call at 301-452-1251.

 2020 was a banner year for donkeys... 
The donkeys and I are in preparation for a snowy winter. Currently we are SOLD OUT of donkeys and we will not have any more available until April of 2021. Due to high demand I started a waiting list. Keep looking at the website in the spring and contact me after the snow melts! We are expecting up to 15 FOALS. Deposits to hold a foal are half of the price of the animal and non-refundable. Jack foals will range from $1500-$4000, Jennets will range from $2000-$6000. Venmo is available and preferred over checks. If you want to be prepared I suggest you save your $$ and get Venmo.
