Carla Carter began raising rabbits many years ago. She started immediately as a commercial grower with very little experience. Carla was used to the business side, but felt that raising rabbits was a good endeavor for her. She researched from academic sources and reached out to a lot of different people who had commercial breeding experience.
Basically, she learned from the school of hard knocks. BUT it has been her passion to SHARE what she knows with others to help them avoid many of the same problems or mistakes that they encountered.
Not only is she a commercial raiser, today Carter Farms Rabbitry is also a procurer of rabbits for many people in the state of Missouri. She works hard to connect people who raise rabbits with several of her commercial processors in the state. Carla is also the founder of another business called Rabbits4u. It is a for pet meat consumption business. She works with other producers all over the country helping to make pet consumption meat available to those people who are considered "raw" feeders. Over the years they have amassed a large following of wonderful loyal customers. Through a partnership with Karen Patry at raising-rabbits.com, she continues to grow and expand this business.
The rabbits she is selling on this website are the same rabbits that she used in her day to day operations.
