Often overlooked, rabbit is an environmentally-friendly, easy-to-produce, yummy-to-eat local meat. Yet most of us shy away from it.
That’s because it’s not one of the Big Four (beef, chicken, pork, turkey) that we casually find in almost every supermarket. Why isn’t rabbit in your supermarket? Having tasted the succulent meat, it’s not because it doesn’t taste good.
The truth is, it’s not being mass-produced in confined animal feeding operations (CAFOs), so it’s just not going to find its way into major grocery stores.
But if you’re trying to source your meats from local farmers and ranchers, you’ll want to give rabbit a try.
