Rocky Valley Farm Free Range Rabbit
Free Range Rabbit! - (Yes this is very difficult to accomplish and there is a high degree of loss but we keep working at it!)
Rabbit - There's a rabbit meat movement going on!
The U.S. Department of Agriculture has stated that domestic rabbit meat is the most nutritious meat known to man. The rest of the world has been eating it for ever!
If you can cook chicken, you can cook rabbit. We eat it regularly because not only do I know that I have raised it on quality natural ingredients without any antibiotics or hormones and have processed it exceeding USDA guidelines but that it possesses excellent nutritional value. Rabbit is also the number one choice for dogs raised on the Raw Food diet. We sell live as well as frozen. Due to state regulations I may only sell the butchered and frozen rabbit to you labeled "for animal consumption only" however, what you do with it afterward is purely up to you. Like many naturally raised food conscious folks we eat it!! : )
