Homesteading Animals: Rearing Rabbits For Meat And Fur - Includes rabbit, duck and game recipes for the slow cooker

Homesteading Animals: Rearing Rabbits For Meat And Fur - Includes rabbit, duck and game recipes for the slow cookerwas a free kindle book when this post was written. In this Homesteading book by Best Selling Author Norman J Stone, Rabbits are in the spotlight. Perhaps one of the most underestimated and nutritional cheap food sources, rabbits have in recent years been on something of a come-back, and quite rightly so in this authors opinion.
The humble rabbit is high in protein, low in calories and only 4.5% fat - lower even than chicken! Not only that, it is easy, quick and cheap to rear; and produces meat and fur that can be used by the family or sold for profit - or both!
