Rabbit?

Can someone recommend a seller of rabbit? Fresh is ideal, frozen will do. I remember seeing a sign for rabbits on county (?) 95 (Manning Road?) in Afton (Hastings??) South of Afton State Park, but north of the turnoff for Whispering Winds Apple Orchard. Yes, I know Clancey's has rabbit, but surely it can be had for cheaper? Thanks!

    I will say, Rabbit is more expensive now (just under $7/lb) than I have ever seen in my whole life....

      Why is rabbit here so expensive? Is it just a lack of demand that drives prices up?

      I have seen frozen rabbit in the cases at Holy Land. I do not recall the price, but as it was fairly soon after a sticker-shocky purchase of rabbit at Clancy's I remember being pretty impressed...hovered somewhere around half the cost, I think. Sourcing is a question mark, as I did not check. Might be worth a look-see.

        try searching at Minnesotagrown.com. There are four producers listed in addition to Marshall Farms linked in a previous post

            I'd give Everett's Meats a call just to see if they have it or can source it for you. I've never looked for it there, but they might carry it.

            I used to get frozen rabbit at Johnson's Meat Co. on Nicollet all those years ago and may have picked up a rabbit at Lund's a while back, but I can't remember seeing it recently.

              Clancy's has superb rabbit, but it is not inexpensive.

                $20 / lb or?

                Everett's does not stock rabbit.

                  I believe I saw rabbit in the case at Seward Coop a year or two ago. I could be dreaming but it might be worth a call.
