Silver Fox Rabbits as meat rabbits



The Silver Fox rabbit was our homestead rabbit of choice quite a few years back.

They were so rare then, we would have them reserved to homsteaders/farmers before they were even born.

Today we took 4 to a friend who has been raising and processing wild and traditional breeds of rabbit for bearly 70 years, to make sure the processing was done just as it should be.

He remarked that they were far bigger when dressed than any he'd ever seen before.

Speaks to the value of Heritage livestock over commercial breeds, for sure.

LUCAS FARM

Be thou diligent to know the state of thy flocks, and look well to thy herds. For riches are not for ever: and doth the crown endure to every generation? The hay appeareth, and the tender grass sheweth itself, and herbs of the mountains are gathered. The lambs are for thy clothing, and the goats are the price of the field. And thou shalt have goats' milk enough for thy food, for the food of thy household, and for the maintenance for thy maidens

- Proverbs 27:23-27




"I know of no pursuit in which more real and important services can be rendered to any country than by improving its agriculture, its breed of useful animals, and other branches of a husbandman's cares."
