pasture-bunnyThe Rabbit Grazier
I’ve developed a completely unique system that allows all rabbits to be on pasture; in my system there are no does in cages and fryers in harepens. They live together in a colony setting and rely on legume-rich pasture for their nutrition. In summer, they are moved to new paddock every day. The rabbits love to eat clover, birdsfoot trefoil, Queen Anne’s Lace, broad plantain, orchard grass, vegetable scraps, pumpkin seeds, and alfalfa hay, with no supplements. They take twice as long to grow as the industry standard and run around. The way they are raised creates a meat that is layered with complex flavors, has a silky texture, and is the healthiest meat you can eat.

Product: 100% grass-fed rabbit
