We raise domestic rabbits as livestock for their meat, fur, conservation grazing, and farm fertility.
Rabbits are herbivores that graze on grass, our understory of forbs, and leafy weeds. Rabbits re-ingest their own droppings (rather than chewing the cud as cows do) to digest their food further and extract sufficient nutrients.
Rabbits are one piece of our silvopasture system and are able to be rotated through the farm in portable rabbit tractors. Their manure improves our soil structure and moisture retention contributing to the life cycle of microorganisms in the soil. Worms love rabbit manure.
All livestock have access to protective shelters with clean bedding, fresh food and water each day.
