Why raise rabbits? There are countless reasons, but the chief amongst them being that they're the absolutely ideal choice for the homesteader or hobby farmer to raise as meat livestock. Rabbits are quiet, don't require much space to be comfortable, take minimal upkeep, are not dependent on commercial grain, have rapid growth and reproduction rates, are easy to humanely dispatch and process, all while yielding a high quality protein-dense and fine-grained meat. We encourage anyone with even a very small property and interest in self sufficiency to look into adding rabbit raising to their repertoire! For more details on raising rabbits for meat, click HERE
