In depth information on breeding and raising rabbits for show stock, pets, breeding stock, meat or fiber. We have a variety of breeds on the farm:  Angoras, Silver Fox, Satins and crossbreeds.

  • How to market your rabbits for sale
  • How to tan hides
  • Breeding
  • Natural feeding
  • Colony raising
  • Tips on butchering (but no actual butchering in this class)
  • Tips on cooking and some interesting recipes
  • Grooming your rabbit (brushing and nail trimming and fiber harvesting)
  • Health care of rabbits
  • Housing
  • Vermiculture (raising worms) with rabbits
  • Identifying genders

And whatever else we can think of!
