ISO Rabbit

Looking for sources for rabbit. I used to purchase farm-raised rabbit at Lund's and Byerly's, but they haven't carried it in a while, and the butcher told me that they've had trouble finding a supplier.

Does anyone know of a source that isn't mail order?

  1. Mississippi Market carries it (frozen), though I would call to find out which store and if they have it in stock.

    I THINK I've seen it at Dragon Star (Dale & Minnehaha in St. Paul), too.

    1. Last year I got some at Seward Co-Op. Year before that I got some at the cheese/deli dude at Midtown Global Market.

          Yes, Clancey's definitely has rabbit- frozen (and sometimes fresh).

        2. Thanks. I searched the board, found an earlier thread, noticed a reference to minnesotagrown.com. Uecker Family Farm has it for $4/pound. I think that's too good to pass up, so I'll likely go ahead and order it after all.

          1. Stasny's Meats on Western / Cook in St. Paul. They are frozen and run about $7-8 for decent sized rodent.

              Not to be picky, but rabbits are in the order Lagomorpha, not Rodentia.

              Sorry, my inner dorkness couldn't pass up the opportunity to comment on phylogeny.

                Lagomorphs differ from rodents in that they have four incisors in the upper jaw (not two, as in the Rodentia) and they are almost strictly herbivorous, unlike rodents, many of which will eat both meat and vegetable matter.
