In this live interview, I will be interviewing Callene Rapp from Rare Hare Barn. We will be discussing all aspects of raising rabbits for both genetic preservations as well as for meat.

Rabbits are one of the most sustainable, nutritious, and economic meat sources available. They can easily be raised in a variety of locations and climates, and require less space and infrastructure than many other species of livestock.

Raising Rabbits for Meat is the how-to guide to help you succeed in starting and running a home rabbitry for a steady source of meat or income. Coverage includes:

The history of the domestic rabbit
Information on breeding, housing, and harvesting
Tools to help you succeed with your program
An emphasis on heritage breeds.

Raising Rabbits for Meat provides a solid foundation for success in raising rabbits and is ideal for anyone interesting in starting a small rabbitry for home use or to market rabbit meat as a business opportunity.

Eric and Callene Rapp have owned and operated the award-winning Rare Hare Barn since 2005, the largest heritage-breed meat-rabbit enterprise in the United States, supplying heritage breed fryers to local restaurants. They have over 50 years of combined experience handling nearly every species of domestic livestock, and are active members of The Livestock Conservancy. Callene is also a regular contributor to Grit Magazine. They live and farm in Leon, Kansas.

Wendy Gilker talks about the joys of raising her gifted daughter, Bree, and the lessons that that has taught her in life. Wendy was born in New Carlisle, Canada and now lives in New Hampshire. She went to Dawson College to get a degree in social science. After college, she lived in Laurentian Mountains working in alpine ski industry and ran her own ski school. She graduated from the Kushi Institutes in Macrobiotics in 1997 at the top of her class. Her first and only daughter, Bree, was born with Wolf-Hirschhorn syndrome and she dedicated 37 years to raising and care-taking for Bree. In the last decade, Wendy began sharing her story on her YouTube channel. After Bree’s passing, she wrote two books- Swan and Bree’s Way Cookbook- which are both sold on Amazon. Her goal is to bring insight and knowledge to the general public on the gifts of our forgotten and ignored special needs and elderly populations. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at

This video shows a short glimpse of a 34+ years of care giving my profoundly disabled daughter Bree. It presents a typical day in our lives and the things I have done to keep my daughter healthy and happy.

Unfortunately I was unable to talk about PTSD of the caregiver, which I hope to present at a later date.

My Dream: To be allowed to care for my daughter at home without the constant financial stress.

Thank you for viewing our story as this visibility gives us a chance to make positive changes.
