Rabbits are growing in popularity. They are inexpensive, easy to maintain, prolific, clean and do not bark or crow. There are forty-five recognized breeds ranging from 20-pound giants to 2-pound dwarfs. Some breeds include as many as fifteen varieties of color or patterns.
We raise Mini Rex, Lionhead, and Dutch rabbits. In addition to the rabbits produced for the pet market, we also raise Tennessee Redback rabbits for the hunt training market.

There is NO shipping on rabbits. Rabbits must be picked up on farm in Germanton, NC.
No rabbit manure is available for sale. All manure is used on our farm as an economic way to fertilize our pastures.
Our rabbits are raised in self-cleaning wire hutches. Droppings and urine fall right through to the ground. They have complete ventilation. Feeders take up no space inside the hutches and can be filled from the outside. We also use a watering system eliminating the need to fill individual bottles or crocks daily.
Domestic rabbits produced in backyards and in commercial rabbitries are good to eat. The meat of a rabbit is all white and fine grained. It has more protein than beef, pork, lamb and chicken. It also has a lower percentage of fat, less cholesterol and fewer calories than most other meats. Rabbit meat can be breaded, fried, broiled, baked or barbecued. Large rabbits are often roasted. People who live in Italy, the Ukraine, France and Spain consume the most rabbit meat. One doe can produce 70 - 95 pounds of edible meat each year - - about nine times her own weight. As land for livestock becomes increasingly scarce and the demand for grain increases, rabbits will become more popular in the United States.
Rabbits are also used in medical and pharmaceutical laboratories and as mittens, muffs, angora sweaters, toys, hats, collars, cuffs and coats.
Gardeners also beg for their manure. Rabbit manure contains higher proportions of nitrogen and phosphorus than many other manures. It also has more potash than most. It will not burn plants even when applied fresh. Rose growers especially love rabbit manure for their plants.
