Our daughters food allergies and a need for healthy eating led us to raising rabbits. The Health benefits of rabbit meat combined with the versatility for cooking led us into raising meat rabbits for our own consumption.
Growing up on a farm with my parents owning a butcher shop; it was natural for the farm to start selling our Federally inspected meat rabbits to local butcher shops, grocery stores and restaurants. As the farm grew so did our products.
Our animals are important to us and the health benefits of rabbit meat for our pets and other peoples pets was yet another way for us to encourage rabbit to be used. Our Farm uses the same meat rabbits for human consumption to produce and sell quality RAW Pet Products. We also have a dehydrated pet treat line of products for our family dogs and our customers. Keeping our pets healthy and as nature intended is important to our family.
HOW WE RAISE OUR RABBITS
Maintaining our rabbits health is very important to us so we have a team (local Vet, Guelph University Rabbit Specialist) that has been instrumental in creating a farming plan and barn environment that works.
We pride our farm on loving all our animals, our rabbits are raised in a happy barn with lots of enrichment toys, natural lighting in our barn, fresh air and natural ventilation. Our family works hard to keep a healthy clean, stress free environment for all the rabbits we raise. This environment contributes to the great taste and quality of our meat products. We provide high quality feed and hay to our rabbits along with natural vegetation.
At weaning and at breeding times we trim nails, brush their fur and conduct in-depth health checks before every breeding date. Our rabbits are treated for PREVENTION of aliments.
The farm strongly believes that wild rabbits use natural vegetation to heal and prevent disease. Providing these natural resources to our meat rabbits is important and as nature intended. Our rabbits eat dandelions, plantain, comfry, etc. They get apple cider vinegar with the mother in it added to their water and we use all natural tea tree oil as a preventative measure. We DO NOT USE ANTIBIOTICS.
