Rachel Falco brings to her blog a vast understanding of farming and homesteading. She and her husband maintain a mixed species poultry flock for her sold-out C.S.A. and a 20 acre homestead. Her passion is for teaching others to become self-reliant, demonstrating how to provide their own food supply and to inspire and educate the next generation of farmers. She believes in careful and thoughtful stewardship of the land we own, the livestock we care for and our family, friends and community.
What We Believe
In true Italian tradition, our sole desire is to produce the best poultry in the world and heal using slow food methodologies. Healing our clients, our birds, our water, our air, our land and our community is the reason we get up in the morning and work as hard as we do everyday. We steward our farm to manage all aspects the right, respectful, sustainable, holistic and healthy way.
The deliberate veil created by Big Government and Industrial Ag which has been dropped over our eyes is astounding. How the majority of our food is being produced should give everyone pause. The way we approach the raising of our livestock, what we feed them, how we treat them and how we process them matters to us.
Every aspect of our farm management process has been approached in a holistic way. We consider the health, well being, treatment and effect of our practices on the animals, our water, our land, our air, and especially YOU!
As a Community Supported Agriculture (C.S.A.) we farm to make a difference. We feel that mimicking natural grazing patterns in domestic production helps balance human interests with respect for the economy, land, water, air, animals and humans. Our animals are allow to express all of their natural behaviors. They are in fresh grass, fresh air and sunshine their entire lives. At Falco’s we care about what our animals are fed, how they are treated in all aspects of their lives, how we support our local economy, and how we support your health. Experience the satisfaction of knowing that your food was raised the right way. Falco’s is holistic, symbiotic and sustainable.

I am a writer, speaker and a farmer.
I am a Catholic, conservative, libertarian, steward and a capitalist.
I live by the mantra: F.E.A.R. ~ Face Everything and Rise!
I Believe In: Respect for tradition, preservation of heritage, the rule of law, our constitution, freedom of religion (establishment or exercise), freedom of speech (or of the press), freedom of assembly (peaceably assemble or petition the government), right to keep and bear arms and I practice this right, right to own property, guard against unwarranted search and seizures, limited government, right to speedy, impartial and public trial, free markets, personal responsibility, and for individuals to solve problems – not the government…
I guess I am an enigma, wrapped in a riddle covered in secret sauce.
Here’s the thing… It doesn’t matter to me if you feel the same way as I do. For that matter, I treasure my friends who are Jewish, liberal, democrat, environmentalist! Being different is a GOOD THING! I have found that having friends who are different from you help you to become a better person. At least it has me. Here’s to all those who belong on the island of misfit toys!
