Raising Rabbits In Your Backyard

Healthy, Sustainable, Economical

 
 

 

With the perils of climate change racing forward, while our earth screams with the pain of toxic Earth, Air, and Water, we, humans, continue our daily living, asking the question,  'What else can I do?'

A Little History!

During earlier times, and up thru the 1940s and '50s, rabbit meat was common on the dinner table. However, rabbit lost its popularity after Big AGRA saw cattle as a way to maximize profits with government support and industry marketing. Because of this,    America switched to eating red meats, and stopped eating rabbit.


Today, families want to eat a healthy diet, and to know the source of their food.

Today, Raising rabbits in your backyard makes a lot of sense:

  • The healthiest of meats

  • Sustainable

  • Economical

  • Reduces global warming, indirectly.

 

THE HEALTHIEST OF MEATS !

  • Excellent source of vitamins, minerals and trace elements.

  • High in vitamins B3 and B12, iron, calcium, phosphorus, potassium and selenium.

  • Excellent balance of fatty acids. Richer in omega 3 than chicken or pork.

  • Rich in easily digestible protein (3oz serving = approx. 28 grams protein).

  • Lower in saturated fat and calories then either beef, pork, chicken or fish.

  • Contains the least amount of fat among all the other available meats.

  • Almost cholesterol free as well as low in sodium, and therefore recommended by The American Heart Association for people with heart problems or high blood pressure.

 

ECONOMICAL !

  • Rabbits produce more meat per pound of feed consumed then any other domestic animal.    

  • The cost per pound to produce rabbit meat is less than any other meat.

  • A rabbit serves 5 - 6 people.

 

SUSTAINABLE / ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY !

  • Rabbits make no noise.

  • No smell.

  • Fertilizer ready to use for vegetables and fruit trees.

  • Low maintenance. They reach harvest maturity in 10 weeks, and food consumption is minimal.

  • Rabbit pelt & fur have several uses.

 
 

REDUCES GLOBAL WARMING !

  • If your family decides to STOP, or reduce, eating RED MEATS, and start eating RABBIT!

  • Growing animals for red meat production produces methane, carbon dioxide, and nitrous oxide, which are released into the atmosphere, and significantly contribute to global warming. 

  • In addition, 80% of all antibiotics are consumed by the livestock industry.

 

RABBIT PREPARATION!

  • Rabbit combines both healthy eating and good flavors.

  • The tender, all white meet, tastes similar, but not identical, to chicken.

  • Rabbit is typically lean, so serve it with vegetables and a healthy grain.

EAT RABBIT AND THRIVE!

  • Healthy to eat and cheap to produce.

Why not incorporate some rabbit meat into your diet today!
