Looking for a sensational meat to prepare for a one-of-a-kind meal? Look no further than our three whole rabbits! Each farm-raised rabbit boasts complex flavors and distinctive undertones you won’t find anywhere else. Unlike traditional red meats or poultry, rabbit meat isn’t widely available and you typically have to pay top dollar to indulge at a fine dining restaurant. Luckily, Robert Wholey Company specializes in summoning the hard-to-find delicacies that can intensify any culinary routine. Reminiscent of chicken in taste, our three cleaned whole rabbits are slightly gamier yet lightweight and delicious. Each package we offer includes about six to eight pounds of meat and arrives at your doorstep in clean, dry ice for the freshest, most flavorful meal possible.
Spice up any meal of the week by stocking up with our four whole rabbits! Whether roasted, stewed, fried, or slow-cooked, rabbit meat is bursting with rich, earthy flavors like you’ve never tasted before. The demand for rabbit is growing due to its unmistakable nutritional value. Succulently lean and delicate, rabbit is also packed with calcium, phosphorus, and more essential protein than either beef or chicken.
Buy three cleaned, whole rabbits today and take advantage of an added bonus! We offer free shipping to select states on orders over $200, so you can stock up on all the fresh rabbit and specialty meats for the whole year without ever leaving the comfort of your home.
