VIDEO Exploration of an Urban Meat Rabbit Operation

Happy Hump Day! In honor of taking this phrase literally, we're going to talk rabbits.

Fitting, don't you think?

One aspect of sustainability, especially when living in an urban setting, is a reputable, self-sufficient source of protein. While locating a farmer with responsibly raised pork, beef, poultry, etc. is relatively easy to do, many urban homesteaders prefer living self-sufficiently by keeping backyard livestock.

In fact, our laying hens are doing awesome so far, and I might as well consider raising meat rabbits, considering the carnage I find every time I let the dogs in the backyard unsupervised.

Use my foot as a guide to see how small this lithe fella was. Poor guy. 

My dogs are idiots. And if they get at my chickens, I'll go ballistic.

But let's seriously talk backyard rabbits for a minute, shall we? I have Austin here today from Time Rewound. He's got a meat rabbit operation at his city home in Northeast Iowa, and he was kind enough to shoot a YouTube video especially for YOU!


Hello again to all the friends of our dear Sustainable Couple! Some of you might remember a post I was privileged to share with you in December about beginning a backyard meat rabbit operation. I was very pleased with the feedback I got, so imagine my delight when Kelli asked me to do a follow-up for y'all to see what's developed since my last post. It made my day :)

I thought I'd go for a more personal experience with y'all this time around, so I made a video update for you so you can get a better idea of what's going on. By clicking on the link below, you'll be taken to my video made specifically for you and posted on YouTube (I've found for vlog updates, that's the easiest way).

(if the embedded video doesn't play, try the link above to go directly to the YouTube video)

If you're at all interested in the things my fiancee and I are doing, feel free to check us out at or email us with your questions or comments at because we would love to hear from you! Once again, thank you to Kelli and John for letting us share our adventure with you. Lauren and I sincerely appreciate the time you take to learn about us and our lives. Take care, God bless, and have a great day!

Austin & Lauren
