Finding Meat rabbits

I'm wanting to get started raising meat rabbits but I'm having trouble finding them. Can anyone suggest a resource or tell me where to look?

    We have a local radio station that does a call in sales forum. There is usually a couple of breeders on every day. I’m in Alabama but I suspect that such a thing is popular all over the country.

    Welcome @Sarah Peters

    We have sevreal local breeder that have good quality meat rabbits. I found then on facebook on homestead groups and my local onsite selling sites.

    Also if you have a local 4-H group or extension ofice they can point you in the right direction

    Hi Sarah,

    If you have a local farm store, you might try there.

    ARBA is the national rabbit association. It might be helpful to connect with them. They provide a lot of good information about care as it seems that most vets know little about how to keep them healthy.

It is health that is real wealth and not pieces of gold and silver.
