ON Hive Community Programs: Rabbit Processing*

  • TBD United States (map)


with James and Paula Horvath

Saturday, November 10

Sunday, November 11


(ages 13 and up or partnering with an adult)

Cost: $85/person or parent/child pair

Materials fee: $25 (bring on your first day)

Rabbits are an abundant and sustainable food source. They are easier to raise than large livestock, have a lower feed to meat ratio, and are much easier on the land. Learn how to process rabbits in a good way, one that honors the animal. Experience the profound and humbling truth of what it means to be a meat eater and express deep gratitude for the gift of food.

Saturday: Learn the techniques to kill, skin, and clean the rabbit.

Sunday: Butcher and prepare the animal for cooking. Learn to use as much of the animal as possible. Participants will go home with a butchered rabbit.

*This class and the upcoming Pelt Tanning and Rabbit Cooking are offered separately. If you sign up for both you will be tanning the pelt of the rabbit you processed. We have space for additional participants to join the tanning and cooking portion using pelts Paula and James have.
