We aren’t able to have much of what we want where we live. No chickens, ducks, sheep, goats or pigs are allowed in our little farming community. Seems strange, that a town of 1300 surrounded by corn and soybean fields, we aren’t allowed a few chickens. Yet this is our realty, which makes it difficult to expand our homesteading skills.
But where there is a will, there is a way.

There is no ordinance saying we can’t raise rabbits.
We aren’t sure what breed(s) we’ll raise, but this year we’ll raise rabbits for food and of course we’ll plant our garden. Another nice benefit of raising rabbits is they produce some great compost material for the garden. Now, if we could just get rid of winter so we can get this party started, all would be well.
