and when I started back,lots of people started asking me about meat rabbits.
I have 3 does due with in the next 2 weeks and all of the kits are sold.
If I do not any for myself.
I also have a friend paying me to manage his doe,when she has her kits, I will raise and process them for him.
He has never raised or eaten rabbit, and if he likes the meat, I will keep managing his doe, if not she will become my doe.
so around here things are looking good.

We have some people who want to buy or trade our rabbit meat. I don't sell meat, because I don't want to deal with regulations, but if you want to trade rabbits for half of a hog you butchered, I'm interested!
If it's any indication, this forum has seen a lot of growth lately, and so many of our new members say something to the effect of, "Hi! I'm just getting started in meat rabbits. I want to produce meat for my family."

However, I still have customers that faithfully return for their rabbits.
I don't want to paint a "rosy" picture because that's when it usually goes south.
But, overall, my sales are on the upswing along with my profits per unit.
It hasn't always been this way.
Last winter, I basically shut my operation down and began production slowly this spring.
As luck would have it, I've been approached by a fella that
is producing pasture pork and range grown cornish/cross fryers.
As an additional item, he offers the rabbits I raise.
All of these go to high-end restaraunts here in the mid-west,
by-passing all of the middle men. All are USDA inspected.
For years, I kept a 20-doe herd and sold fryers to
end-consumers as quick as they were raised.
It has it's ups and downs.
