About Us

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!

  3. Powerful stuff!
    I really enjoy reading this blog: the passion, the practicality and look, from across long waters, for advice and example.

    Not sure if it is the allotment version (which would be the relevant one I guess) at

    But, in this post I am particularly struck by that marvellous final paragraph.
    Keep on keeping on – please.

    Owning a C.S.A is hard work. I did a lot of research in preparation for the graphic novel, Beanstalk. (It’s about GMOs gone awry, and the farmers who must stop them. lol.) I’m so glad you have enough time to blog, and that you are impassioned to teach others about self reliance.

  7. Hello Rachel. Thanks for following my blog and liked my post on the panna cotta. I read yours as well and realized I had forgotten to write in the phase of letting the panna cotta cool to room temperature before putting them in the fridge. Yikes! I’ll have to fix that now haha. Thank you again! I’ve also scrolled through your other posts and they are so cool as well! I also love your “About us”; I feel that you have such an amazing motivation and what you are doing is beautiful. I guess I could absolutely relate to your cause and actions since the food industry in Vietnam is in really bad shape and harmful to consumers as well as to the environment. Here the produce is soaked with pesticides and herbicides and antibiotics, and other harmful chemicals; we do not know what or who to trust when it comes to eating clean food. I’m sure I will learn much from you and your beautiful family and perhaps will be able to pass on the knowledge and the good vibe to people here in my country.

    Sincerely,
    Chinou
