About the Author

Nichki Carangelo is a third-generation Italian American, second-generation small business owner, and a first-generation farmer from Waterbury, Connecticut. She began her agricultural career one year after graduating from Sarah Lawrence College, and three years later, she became a founding member of Letterbox Farm Collective, a cooperatively owned, diversified farm in Hudson, New York. Today she manages livestock and direct markets for the farm, while squeezing in research and organizing work on the side where she can.


"Raising Pastured Rabbits for Meat covers some of the ups and downs of a rabbit-raising start-up, as well as the emotions and real-life mistakes tied to starting a farm. Overall it's a well thought out introduction to pasture-based rabbit production for beginners."--Daniel Salatin, Polyface Farm

"As a rabbit farmer and chef who prizes rabbit as a heritage ingredient, I've been encouraged to see more farmers, cooks, and consumers rediscovering the benefits of pastured rabbit in recent years. With this book Carangelo provides a growing community of small-scale producers with an essential road map for the journey of launching a small rabbitry into a successful business and long-lasting, nourishing resource."--Mike Costello, chef and farmer, Lost Creek Farm

"Nichki Carangelo's Raising Pastured Rabbits for Meat is like a long chat with a warm and generous friend who's sharing advice based on her own experience, hard won from both her successes and her mistakes (which you won't have to repeat). Her approach is pragmatic and flexible, never doctrinaire. Perhaps her best advice is to avoid rabbit 'monoculturing, ' which is only likely to succeed at an unattainably large scale, and instead to make your rabbit marketing venture an integral part of a diverse and adaptable small farm."--Harvey Ussery, author of The Small-Scale Poultry Flock

"They're cute, fluffy, and one of the world's most sustainable sources of meat. Yes, rabbits can make an excellent food source and income stream for a diversified family farm or homestead. Farmer and author Nichki Carangelo clearly lays out the essentials you need to start, manage, and grow a meat rabbit business in a way that not only generates income but also treats the animals humanely. There isn't another book out there like this on the subject."--Rebecca Thistlethwaite, author of The New Livestock Farmer
