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. Rachel, I want to thank you for following my blog. The mission of my blog is to entertain. it my entertainments offend a few folks, I have probably done my job well. If you get a laugh or a tear or an inspiration from one of my post, I have done my job well.

    I live in a city and am a city kind of guy. But I do appreciate, and am very thankful, for the work of you and those like you are doing. I grew up in an idealistic time. We thought we could change the world. In a lot of ways, we did. But in a lot of ways we failed. I am thankful that you are putting your ideals into a pragmatic practice. Always be encouraged that there are those of us out here who believe in what you are doing. We don’t always say it. But what you are doing is magic. Real magic, not the kind you see in the movies or on tv. Real magic that comes from the lives of real people. Thank you.

    Finally, I don’t know if you have touched base with this blog and the blogger but I follow her and she, like you, is doing magic. http://almostfarmgirl.com/

  5. Thanks for following my blog. That led me to yours. Your information is great and very inspiring. I do have a vegetable garden (with raspberries) during the summer. You have inspired me to perhaps try more during other months of the year. In Denver, we are not often below zero, so the possibility is there. I will be reading your blog for further inspiration. Thank You!

    Thanks for liking the post about my hubby’s horrible Halloween haircut! 🙂

    Thanks, also, for following my blog! I hope if you can find the time that you will stop by my page called “Reasons to Smile” and leave a comment. It’s a list of things people are thankful for, just to encourage each other. I’d love to hear your thoughts!

    It looks like we have some similar life goals. I applaud you for trying to live in this beautiful world without destroying what God created via chemicals, GMOs, and such.

  8. Ciao Rachel, thank you for following my blog, Timeless Italy! Your interests are right up my alley…I homesteaded years ago in Olympia, WA. with my tiny babies. I still have a warm place in my heart for this lifestyle. Although I travel, I love to come home to my little hilltop cabin and just be with the natural beauty. Glad we connected and I look forward to reading your posts.

    Hi Rachel: an interesting stew of what could seem to be mutually incompatible beliefs: I’m an anti-abortion atheist, so I’m used to people saying “You can’t be both”….. I’ll need time to get an idea of how it works in practice, so I’ll start reading…. in the meantime, hi from Italy….
