We raise rabbits for meat, pelts, and fertilizer. We currently raise pedigreed Champagne d’Argent. Rabbits are a very economical and easy to raise livestock, perfect for a homestead situation!
Rabbit meat is very healthy! Compared to other meats, it is significantly leaner and higher in protein. Rabbits have a great meat to bone ratio and provide higher yield than chicken.
Did you know that bunny berries make some of the best fertilizer? Manure from horses, cows, and chickens tends to be considered ‘hot’ manure and has to be composted before it can be mixed into soil. Rabbit manure is considered to be ‘cold’, which means it can be used immediately. Rabbit poo is richer in soil building nutrients than many others and can drastically improve the life and structure of your soil.
