I am often asked why we raise rabbits for meat. Or why we don’t buy meat from a grocery store. Let me just add, I buy most of my chicken from the grocery store or from a friend who raises them. I make sure it is organic and as natural as possible. But we don’t eat chicken regularly, so it isn’t a huge ordeal for me to just pick it up at the store when I need it. We mostly eat rabbit, venison (a LOT of it!), beef and pork. Our rabbit comes from our homestead, our venison is harvested by mountain man in the fall and winter, our beef normally comes from a cow share or my brother-in-law, and our pork comes from a fellow farmer/homesteader up the road who we purchase a pig from once or twice a year. Some of these things are processed in a clean facility, others we process ourselves.
So, why do we raise our own meat or purchase meat from trusted farmers? Read more on our blog…..
