In the beginning

When our oldest daughter DD9 (dear daughter age 9) was in kindergarten we looked at extracurricular activities. We thought about girl scout type stuff. Spots which we did do later. Eventually for one reason or another we decided on 4H. We wanted something we could tolerate that she could handle and we needed to feel confident in the leader because we did not know any more than our DD did! 

Into our lives came a bunny rabbit! A cute little baby... are you sure that's not a puppy?... Holland Lop bunny rabbit.

Eventually and through much research I decided that as far as sustainability goes with very limited space here, rabbits would be a wise food choice for us. They are small and require little space. They are very efficient when it comes to turning there food into, well, more rabbit! I researched very hard to come up with the most efficient breed and never looked back. We love our rabbits! We breed them and show them and raise them and it is good family fun. Although I raise them for meat I have been able to sell them all thus far and we have actually not eaten any of our babies in the nearly 3 years I have been raising them. We never could have done any of this if it was not for our amazing 4H leader Cheryl. We love you Cheryl!
