    Deevabits Rabbit Farm located at Makuyu, Murang'a County is looking for rabbit suppliers from across the country. The farm pays Sh450 per Kg of rabbit meat (dressed weight) or Sh225 per Kg of live rabbit. The rabbit must have attained at least 2.5Kgs.

    Deevabits picks a minimum of 60 rabbits from farmers in far-out counties such as Nakuru and Nyeri. For farmers with a number less than that they have to deliver the rabbits themselves.

    The farm offers farm visits and training on rabbit keeping at a fee.
