I agree with Sonya. Look for some rabbit breeders in your area. Those that raise meat rabbits will probably be more expensive but if you can find rabbitrys of show breeders you will find that they have to cull over 50% of the offspring because there isn't justification for keeping anything that isn't show or show breeder quality. You may get 1 keeper out of 20 babies. When I was raising show rabbits I sold some of the culls for pets but the rest became either meat or were sold to reptile or raptor groups, mostly raptor rescue. These don't usually command a huge price. I think I got anywhere from $3-5 each but that was small bunnies. The larger they need to be the more that is invested in food and care so the price would go up commensurate with the bunnies size!
