Storey's Guide to Raising Rabbits
Overall it seems as easy as... wire cage, water, food, ventilation, cool but not too cold. If it is your goal, you can produce a lot of meat in a short time - they do, afterall, breed like rabbits (the book doesn't go into as much detail on this aspect as I would have liked to see). Fixed costs are reasonably cheap but not so much when considering start up costs and buck/doe costs. There is a business possibility here, but with so little profit I would not pursue with the exception of maybe selling a life junior a few times a year to minimize expenses. I only care about meat, but there seems to be a lot of people who simply love raising rabbits, showing rabbits, and making money (albeit very little) from rabbits; this book touches on all of these aspects.

This year the yard was improved with the addition of a proper garden as well as an area for raising chickens. The initial map was also created.
My first attempt at a small proper garden, a deck turned cornucopia, and a chicken coop from recycled materials.
This year I built several raised beds, composted like a madman, began restoring a creek bank, and made a small dam that failed.
The journey of a thousands miles begins with a single step. This is the first year I began redesigning my father's yard into a permaculture inspired eden.
