My husband and I were looking into keeping rabbits as a meat source for our family. I have been doing a lot of research on the subject and your web site had great information. I appreciate that you are so generous with your advice to new members and novice rabbit keepers. I hope to supplement our meat sources with rabbits and chickens. Though I know we would have to have another source of meat as well, the rabbits check 90% of the boxes we have for try to be self-sustaining. Thank you all so much for your advice and information.

Hi! I am pretty new myself to the rabbit and chicken world. Also trying to be more self sufficient. I am curious why you say you will need another meat source. If you don't mind my asking. I am hoping this will be enough for my family, other than just really wanting some chili with beef or an odd dish. Anyway, welcome! I have already got some helpful input from the members here!

A country butcher shop in the middle of a large Amish community. The shop isn't Amish owned or operated, but they're in a grand location to procure good meat from either commercial sellers or the Amish. The Amish have several stores scattered around that sell sporting goods, dry goods, garden goods, farming implements ... you name it, it can probably be found there or ordered through them.
The Amish are also a good source of information when you're looking for non-electric appliances like gas lighting, gas refrigerators/freezers and a few more. Being from Amish country and being a retired HVAC service tech, I'm kind of surprised at the number of people, even RV owners who aren't familiar with such appliances. RVs, Recreational Vehicles, commonly use gas refrigerators since electricity isn't always available and even some RV owners don't know what gas refrigerators are! If you want to get 'off-grid', the Amish are a resource that can't be beat

Lucky you! I have lived near Amish communities before, fantastic source. We do have a Mennonite community but its about an hour away so not an immediate resource.
