Many people are capable of producing much more food than they think. That’s real! Most people dont want to do the research or take the time to figure out how to do it.
Why would they?! Supermarket, right?
In localities all over the nation, people are finding out and taking advantage of the fact that they can keep livestock. Even in suburban areas, people are taking this on.
Why don’t we like to eat cute things? The first time I ate rabbit I was blown away by the flavor and texture of the meat.
I thought it was something I should eat more but the availability was rough. Now, so many years later homesteaders are taking advantage of the prolific breeding, easy butchering, furs and delicious meat of these animals.
There is a lot to consider when it comes to keeping rabbits but they are a great little source of backyard food.
Whether you decide to keep hens for laying or chickens for slaughter, they are great animals that do a lot of good in terms of food production. The humble egg is such incredible food and its one that we should all eat more of. Laying hens can go a long way for you and you dont even have to slaughter for meat.
Similar to chickens, goats are going to offer you a dual purpose. You could argue more than that! From a food standpoint, goats can offer you milk along with meat. I will warn you that a cute little dairy goat in a larger suburban lot is going to be a real tough sell if it comes time to slaughter that animal.
You are going to fall in love with your goat.
Food is essential, you can do a lot more in your yard than you think. Start winning the food game by producing real food in your backyard.
