Highlighted farmers: Blue Diamond Group

Blue Diamond Group offers 25,000 fine quality short nap North American Pale Clear Pastel Mink.

Blue Diamond Group is owned and family operated by Wayne and Lisa Hodgson. Wayne has many years of experience in the trade, as he started working on a mink farm at the age of 13 in 1977. Three years later, he purchased one female for breeding and has grown into one of the largest North American pastel breeders with his own brand.

Lisa and Wayne met in school where they were High School sweethearts, and now, almost 40 years later, the couple continue to proudly supply North American Pastels to the buyers of the world.

The couple initially sold with Springbook Group, but in 2016, they found that they had enough mink to start their own group. This means that Blue Diamond Group can offer an extremely consistent quality and color requested by many buyers around the world.

“I am excited to join American Mink Exchange selling at Kopenhagen Fur. I believe that this is the future place to sell my pale pastels and I look forward to offer my mink skins to all the worlds buyers”, says Wayne Hodgson.
