Unless you’re a vegetarian, there’s no reason why you should’t consider eating rabbit instead of chicken, beef, ham, or turkey. The United States, however, still has the Easter Bunny syndrome! Europeans, especially the French, Italians, Spanish, and Germans eat a lot of rabbit meat. If we can ever get over our prejudices here in the US., eating rabbit makes a lot of sense.
Mainly designed as a meat producing rabbitry, we offer rabbit meat to you the consumer for many different purposes. We sell our meat directly to the public. If you have a specific need feel free to ask and we will do everything we can to accommodate your needs.
PLEASE NOTEIn order for us to provide healthy and disease free environment for our rabbits, we maintain a CLOSED RABBITRY. Potential buyers will, however, be able to view enough of the building’s interior and some rabbits to observe the rabbits and the conditions they live under. We’re sorry, but no outside rabbits, dogs, cats or any other animal may be brought onto the property. Thank you for understanding.
FATS Rabbit has the lowest percent fat with less then 4.5%. Most meats are extremely high in fats. Unfortunately they are high in the most undesirable fat which are the saturated fats. If you break down the fat into its components of saturated and unsaturated, 63% of rabbit’s 4.5% fat is unsaturated, the “Good” Fat.
CALORIES Rabbit meat has 795 calories per pound of meat compared to chicken at 810, veal at 840, turkey at 1190, lamb at 1420, beef at 1440 and pork at 2050. The lower the calories of a food the greater impact it has on a positive diet. Amazingly rabbit meat is less than half the calories of pork, and about one half the calories of lamb and beef.
CHOLESTEROL The wrong types of cholesterol leads to many types of heart problems. Red meat and pork are equally high and are often discouraged in low cholesterol diets. Those who want to continue to eat some form of meat should consider rabbit which is lower in cholesterol than chicken.
Farm-raised rabbit meat is an all white meat and mild in flavor, without having the “gamy” flavor often associated with other animals such as water fowl or deer. It is almost cholesterol free and low in sodium and therefore very heart patient friendly. The calcium and phosphorus contents of this meat are more than any other meat. Phosphorus, along with calcium, helps in bone health and also helps to regulate fluids.
Rabbit meat also has other vitamins and minerals in it, which are needed by the body in small amounts. These include iron, copper and zinc. Iron is important in the production of red blood cells and the distribution and absorption of oxygen throughout the body. Copper is necessary for cellular growth and development and is taken in through diet since the body cannot produce this mineral. Zinc is important to boost the immune system and calcium absorption.
Rabbit meat also contains selenium and potassium. Selenium works as an antioxidant to remove free radicals before they can do damage to your body. Some types of cancer, as well as the ravages of aging, can be battled with selenium. Selenium is also very important in maintaining good thyroid functioning and supporting a healthy immune system. Potassium helps with fluid regulation and helps remove salts from the body.
Vitamin B2 or riboflavin is another nutrient found in rabbit meat which is important to keep the digestive track healthy. It is also important in breaking down protein and fats. Another nutrient, Vitamin B12 is necessary in the proper function of the nervous system. It is also needed in the production of protein and red blood cells. Rabbit meat has also been recommended for special diets such as for heart disease patients, diets for the elderly whose metabolism has slowed and digestion is compromised. Low sodium diets, and weight reduction diets, because the meat is easily digested, has been recommended by doctors for patients who have trouble eating other meats.
So in conclusion, rabbit meat compared to all other meats, wins hands down.
