Rabbit Cacciatore

2 teaspoons salt, plus more to taste
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, plus more to taste
1/2 cup all purpose flour, for dredging
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 large red bell pepper, chopped
1 onion, chopped
½ cup shiitake mushrooms, cleaned 
3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
3/4 cup dry white wine
Two medium sized very ripe tomatoes cored and roughly chopped (or a 28oz can of diced tomatoes) 
3/4 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
1 1/2 teaspoons dried oregano leaves
1/4 cup coarsely chopped fresh basil leaves

Take rabbit half and break down as you’d like. (We just cut it at parts that looked “natural” to cut at, into approximately 6 pieces) Sprinkle the rabbit pieces with 1 teaspoon of each salt and pepper. Dredge the meat in the flour for a light coating. 


In a large heavy saute pan, heat the oil over a medium-high flame. Add the rabbit pieces to the pan and saute just until brown, about 3 minutes per side. Transfer the rabbit to a plate and set aside. Add the bell pepper, onion and garlic to the same pan and saute over medium heat until the onion is tender, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Add the wine and simmer until reduced by half, about 3 minutes. Add the tomatoes with their juice, mushrooms, broth, capers and oregano. Return the rabbit pieces to the pan and turn them to coat in the sauce. Bring the sauce to a simmer. Continue simmering over medium-low heat until the rabbit is just cooked through, about 15 minutes. 


Using tongs, transfer the rabbit to a platter. If necessary, boil the sauce until it thickens slightly, about 3 minutes. Spoon the sauce over the rabbit, then sprinkle with the basil and serve.

We will sell our chickens live, ready to process if you prefer to handle that yourself, or packaged and ready for your freezer.

 If you are interested in buying chicken or being added to our waiting lists please drop us an e-mail.


Several times a year we raise Broilers. We choose to raise them in smaller batches, rather than hundreds at a time. For us this ensures the quality care, they need to thrive.

All of our chickens are raised in healthy, clean environments.
 
All of our birds are raised in the most natural way possible, and will never live in small cages or on wire.
 
We do not feed our chickens any hormones, or steroids.

We have select cuts of USDA Pork now available.
Ground Pork
Chops
Roasts
Spare Ribs
The pork doesn't last long, so if you are interested in any quantity please let us know.
