The Rabway Breeders Group are rabbit breeders who work together to provide 4H-FFA exhibitors with guaranteed livestock.
We also provide breeding stock to other fair breeders and individuals wanting to have a home based meat supply.
Related products include rabbit raising equipment such as cages watering feeding etc, vermiculture based organic based fertilizers, worms and such. Pet meat for raw feeding is also included.
Buyers benefit from the reliability of supply for county fairs and access to stock that has met our stringent code of practice. We assist exhibitors with education about their projects as well as people wanting to bred their own rabbits.
Rabway can conduct a rabbit workshop for your 4H or FFA Club!
Our workshops provide:
Please contact us well in advance to arrange a suitable date, time and venue for your workshop.

Rabbits - Vermiculture - Food
Holistic sustainable small farming
Enhanced land usage
Enriched well being of your animals
Superior natural food
Organic foods are foods that are produced using methods that do not involve modern synthetic inputs such as synthetic pesticides and chemical fertilizers, do not contain genetically modified organisms, and are not processed using irradiation, industrial solvents, or chemical food additives.
We at Texlan Rabbits manage our rabbitry and associated activities following holistic sustainable farming practices. We have been able to demonstrate the quantity of low cost food (meat and vegetables) that can be produced from a small area of land. How the quality of produce and longevity of plants is vastly improved.
Rabbits are a great introduction to natural organic based livestock production. The following approach demonstrates how you can benefit from rabbit production:
Vermicompost is the product of composting utilizing various species of worms, usually red wigglers, white worms, and earthworms to create a heterogeneous mixture of decomposing vegetable or food waste (not to include meat, dairy, fats or oils), bedding materials, and vermicast.
Vermicast, also known as worm castings, worm humus or worm manure, is the end-product of the breakdown of organic matter by species of earthworm. This type of composting is sometimes suggested as a feasible indoor composting method.
The earthworm species (or composting worms) most often used are Red Wigglers (Eisenia foetida or Eisenia andrei), though European nightcrawlers (Eisenia hortensis) could also be used. Red wigglers are recommended by most vermiculture experts as they have some of the best appetites and breed very quickly. Users refer to European nightcrawlers by a variety of other names, including dendrobaenas, dendras, and Belgian nightcrawlers.
Containing water-soluble nutrients, vermicompost is a nutrient-rich organic fertilizer and soil conditioner.
Vermicompost tea has been shown to cause a 173.5% increase in plant growth by mass over plants grown without castings. These results were seen with only 10% addition of castings to produce these results. [wikipedia compost]
