I’ve been raising rabbits for some time now and I absolutely love them because they have so much to offer. Since they’re such a great addition to our lifestyle I’ve decided to compile a list of reasons why every homestead should have rabbits.
1. A Great Meat Source
Rabbit meat is lean and has a great flavor. For this reason alone backyard farmers love to have rabbits for growing their own meat. Rabbits are easy to cull (it doesn’t even require a bullet) and they can be processed and in your freezer within minutes. I initially started raising rabbits so my raw fed dogs could have more of a variety in their diet.
