Price of meat rabbits?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Apologies if this has been covered before.  For those that sell meat rabbits, what do you charge?  Is this for the live rabbit and the customer does the harvesting or do you harvest and charge by the lb?  And does it change from region to region.  I'm in Florida.  I'm not doing this as a side business but realize that at some point I may have more than what we personally need.  We currently have (I think) Mini Lops.  The ears are down and doing an image search had pics of Mini Lops that look just like what I have.  Pretty big and the guy I purchased from said they're great meat rabbits.

 

Thoughts welcome :)

I don't currently have any of my own. However, I bought some from a guy a while back and they were $15/ea for Californians or NZ's. He had to sell them live as he's not a registered processor here in MD. He sales most of his to commercial buyers I was told.

Thank you for the reply.  $15 is what I paid for mine when I started so perhaps that is a good benchmark.  Thank you again.
