Never Tried Rabbit?

It is an all white meat similar to chicken breast. It is skinless. You can use it in just about any recipe you have for chicken. It is very tasty, has a nice texture, and cooks very cleanly in stewing recipes.

American Rabbit MEat

Purebred American rabbit meat

We have been fortunate to start a breeding colony of American rabbits - one of the rarest of all rabbit breeds and listed as critical on the American Livestock Breeds Conservation priority list. They are also listed on the Slow Food USA Ark of Taste. I know its hard for some people to think of rabbits as meat animals but rabbits are very efficient at converting plant matter into meat. They are a "forgotten" meat animal that hopefully will regain popularity.

  • Rabbits are sold whole.
  • Our rabbit meat is $9/lb based on the hanging weight.
  • The hanging weight for rabbits ranges from 2.25 to 4 lbs. Sometimes we have larger ones in the 4 to 5 lb range.

What our Rabbits Eat

Our rabbits eat a natural rabbit pellet that is made mostly of alfalfa and they graze on grass in our pastures. The grasses include rye, wild oat, plantain, vetch, burmuda, savana, mustard, and various broadleaves. From the time they are weaned they live in "rabbit tractors" that allow us to move them all around the farm to the best patch of green grass. Not only do they love the grass but they help us mow in hard to reach places like between our grapevines.

With the recent de-regulation of GMO alfalfa we have become concerned about whether or not the rabbit pellets we buy would someday include a GMO. So we planted 25 acres of alfalfa to feed to our rabbits, hogs and sheep. The rabbits are not getting all of their alfalfa from this field yet but we are trying to increase its production (naturally of course).
