    Though it is a staple of Italian and French kitchens, rabbit meat is a rarer pleasure in the U.S. You will find that the light and tender meat works well in any season, and is easy to prepare.

    Additional Information

    The name says it all: rabbit fryer. Cooking tips do not always come embedded in the name, but this is one of those times.

    Lean young rabbit with its fine-textured white meat is perfect for frying. Think chicken, but with a somewhat sweeter taste. They say that if you can cook chicken, you can cook rabbit.

    Separate the rabbit into six cuts: the meaty hind legs, smaller front legs, and two halves of the saddle. Break them down further into more manageable morsels for frying. You should end up with ten pieces. Dredge in flour and fry away.

    Not into the deep fry? A classic rabbit stew or fricassee can be delightful, too.

    Our mission is to find farmers that share our vision of a more humane and sustainable way of rearing livestock. We respect our place in the food chain, and see farmers as true stewards of the land and environment. This is why we build real relationships with our farmers, and work only with those who respect nature and focus on the best animal welfare practices.

    On traditional farms it was the younger family members who raised the rabbits, learning important skills needed for adulthood. This is continuing today with a revival of rabbit rearing, even in urban settings where it is possible to raise them in hutches on rooftops or in small backyards.

    Rabbits are environmentally-friendly, easy to raise, and produce tender white meat that is considered the most nutritious protein by the USDA.

    We work with a cooperative of small family farms in the Midwest; each farm signs an agreement to raise and process the rabbits humanely, and never administer antibiotics or hormones. The Californian White and New Zealand White breed rabbits are fed a vegetarian diet of sweet alfalfa, oats, wheat and barley.

    Our Rabbit

    We are proud to offer superior quality rabbit raised by small-scale farms where best animal welfare practices are paramount and antibiotics are forbidden. Long a favorite on the tables of Europe, rabbit is gaining popularity in the U.S. for its great tasting, delicate and lean meat.
