The first practical resource for sustainable pasture-based rabbit production for the beginning to market-sale farmer.
One of the world's most sustainable sources of meat, rabbit is the new chicken. Or so say many in the food world. In a country with a $41 billion broiler chicken industry, this might seem loke a bold claim, but it's legitimate. For consumers, rabbit offers an earth-friendly super protein that's rich in heritage. For livestock farmers, their nutrient-dense manure, portability, and minimal capital investment make rabbits a more viable enterprise than chicken. Yet few producers are stepping up to meet the increasing demand, due in part to a lack of available resources.
