So I had an idea strike me while I was at work. I get a lot of time to think on this job lol. So I was thinking as another idea for a food source was a rabbit farm. When I started researching it, it seems pretty easy and straight forward. This would give me a good source of lean meat all while giving me some hides to sell ( I know someone that would pay a decent price a stack of hides since he deals in leather). From what I was reading too is that I can use some of the entrails for a good supplement to dog food too and what ever is left can be composted. Is there anybody on the forum that has had or still does have a rabbit farm. Is there anything I should be careful of? How many rabbits do you think should be sufficent to start off with. ( I eat a lot of food 3k calories + a day).
Yeah it seems simple enough. There is a family right off the main road to get to my property that grows alfalfa. I think he raises cattle too. So I might be able to bargain with him for a 1 or 2 bale’s of hay which would would last rabbits quite a long time.
