Rabbits are a staple in much of the world as they are a vital part of a traditional diet. This traditional food knowledge and our healthy desire for diverse sources of protein led us to raise Rex Rabbits as livestock for their meat to bone ratio (for both human and dog consumption), their velvety pelt, conservation grazing, , rabbits for sale, and farm fertility. Seasonally, rabbits reside in our portable “rabbitats” and are but one part of our silvopasture system.
Fully grown, a Rex weighs between 8-10 pounds, has a relatively calm temperament, and comes in a wide variety of colors.
Rabbits are herbivores that graze on grasses, our understory of forbs, and leafy weeds. They re-ingest their own droppings (rather than chewing the cud as cows do) to digest their food further and extract nutrients. Their manure improves our soil structure and moisture retention contributing to the life cycle of soil microorganisms. When not on their seasonal pastures, rabbits are vital to keeping our vermiculture systems thriving.
