Raising Backyard Meat Rabbits Workshop – located at Serendipity Farm, Burnsville, NC

Spring 2019 Dates TBD

The Raising Backyard Meat Rabbits workshop is designed for anyone who wants to learn how to raise and butcher rabbits for meat at home. Rabbits are an excellent choice for meat as they can provide healthy and tasty meat with a minimum of space, time, resources, and low environmental impact.

Attendees will learn the “how” and “why” of raising rabbits for meat. How to choose breeding stock, sex rabbits, breeding, feeding, and handling. We will also cover how to safely and humanely dispatch and process the rabbit. Attendees may choose to observe only or participate in the processing. Take home your processed rabbit for an additional fee.

Pre-registration and pre-payment is required. Each workshop is limited to 5-6 attendees so that we have enough time for answering individual questions. Email serendipityfarmNC@yahoo.com to reserve your spot and for payment instructions and directions to the farm.

$40 per person, bring a spouse/partner/friend for an additional $20. Take home your processed rabbit for an additional $15. Mature children may come along – parents must be responsible for their child(ren) at all times! Breeding stock may be available for purchase also.
