    OK i have got to the point now that i can sell to restaurants. Now my question is do any of you do this and how much do you get a pound? Now i know it will depend on where you are. It floors me that some people on here can sell meat and rabbit for less then what it cost me to grow them. But anyways i live in Vermont and any help would be good. I do have 1 place lined up but just wondering if my price is low, good I know its not high. they cant wait for the meat...lolThanks jim

    Call around to those who buy it and ask them directly.
    No one sells them for less than it costs to grow them. If you are, then you are missing something. Either over feeding, bad rabbit lines or settling.

    Do the laws require your product to be USDA stamped? If so, have you found a place to do it? Have you figured out the cost of how much A, rabbit costs from born to butcher size? Then add in your profit.
    I know what you mean about people selling for less then they have into rabbits. I see it quite often. People dont sit down and figure out what they have into raising them.
    Not everyone thinks business like.
    Looking forward to hearing about your venture.
