  • Hopper Popper used for rabbit dispatching

    Eddie from Food for Thought discusses the 3 methods that he has personally used and gives his opinion on each method. Ultimately, Eddie chooses the Hopper Popper tool set over alternatives because the killing of the rabbit is clean, instant and humane.

  • You have an awesome product! I’m a novice at processing rabbits and I was able to dispatch, clean and bag 8 fryers in less than 2 hours with no added stress to the animals. Thank you for truly living up to your advertising and I will tell everyone I know how great the “Hopper Popper/Hanger” are to a little farm homesteaders!

    I love this thing! I can take it with me to butcher my friends’ animals. I can move it around to suit my own needs. It is so quick and stress free. I no longer dread harvest days.

Low and behold, I found my hearts desire in the Hopper Popper product and I was not disappointed in the least. Thanks Hopper Popper Team!
