  • Rabbits are very easy to maintain as they require little to no medicinal care and subsist on grass, field crop byproduct, and refuse from garden plants and kitchen waste.
  • A small brood of rabbits can not only provide almost half the protein nutrients for a medium sized family in a single week, but can also provide up to 20% of the average farmer’s annual salary.
  • A single female rabbit can typically produce an average of 20 or more offspring per year, hence the saying “Multiply Like Rabbits!”
  • Rabbits are an exceptional community builder. Their manure provides a very nutrient rich fertilizer which makes rabbit farmers a good pairing with crop farmers and due to their high breeding rate, rabbit farmers are able to “Pass on the Gift” to other families several times a year.
