One of the rarest recognized breeds of rabbits

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 Ark of Taste.

Our breeding goals include:
  • Meat production qualities. Large litters with good growth characteristics while maintaining health and viability. Our goal is to meet to the original breed characteristic of achieving a 5 lb rabbit at 10 weeks of age.
  • Breed conformation. A mandolin body style with good meat distribution.
  • Color. Deep solid blue or white with the ability to breed white to blue or blue to blue and only get blue or white kits.

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 30 acres of alfalfa to feed to our rabbits and hogs. By mid-summer we should have our first good cutting of alfalfa.

Check out our video of us harvesting the first cutting from this field

Did you know?

Rabbits are one of the most efficient and nutritious meat animals in the world.
  • Rabbit is higher in protein and lower in fat, cholesterol, and calories than beef, pork, chicken, lamb and turkey
  • Rabbits will produce 6 lbs of meat on the same feed and water as a cow will produce 1 lb of meat
  • Rabbit meat is all white meat.
  • As recently as the 1950’s rabbit was as common for dinner as chicken is today.
