Rabbit Meat Is In The Midst Of A Miniature Revival

Carolyn Loveland grew up helping fellow hunters process rabbits. Now she and her husband, John, have added rabbits to their Allens Hill Farm.

Yet she hadn't eaten rabbit meat until recently.

"Oh my gosh, it was amazing," says half of the duo of Allens Hill Farm, a specialty foods producer known at area farmers markets for its apple cider molasses, bread mixes, granolas and dukkah, a Middle Eastern spice blend. "Like a cross between veal and pork loin. Really tender, and not gamey at all."

The Lovelands breed and raise the animals in a couple of barns at their Richmond, Ontario County, farmstead. Since last fall, they have been selling the meat at area farmers markets as well as to a handful of local restaurants.
