Rabbits: The secret homestead resource

Rabbits are among the easiest species to raise and, unlike most of their farmyard counterparts, require little space and will not likely disturb neighbors with noise. For people wanting to become more self-reliant for food, the rabbit is a great choice for a meat resource that also provides you with top-grade fertilizer for the garden. Learn the basics of keeping and breeding rabbits and how heritage breed rabbits offer you a wide variety of sizes, personalities, and colors from which to choose.
