Carla's history includes her grandparents who were also rabbit raisers. She is proud of this legacy.
My grandparents lived through the depression. They raised rabbits as a means to feed their family. It is important to me that I have carried that part of my family's history on through present day. I'm also proud to have worked with so many people to help them learn how to raise rabbits as well.
Carla began raising rabbits many years ago. She started immediately as a commercial grower with very little experience. She had several excellent mentors who helped her along the way. 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 she encountered. Carla is also the founder of another business called Rabbits4u. It is a 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 "raw" feeders. Over the years they have amassed a large following of wonderful loyal customers. Through a partnership with Raising-Rabbits.com, she continues to grow and expand this business.
