About Michael Rahal

Michael Rahal - Professional Summary:      

Although Michael Rahal possesses an extensive background in design, he had always wanted to open a holistic, sustainable farm. As the owner of Rahal Farms in Fairview, Tennessee, Michael Rahal is deeply involved with all aspects of animal care, farm maintenance, and food production.

As a child in Georgia, Michael Rahal was surrounded by farm-fresh, artisanal food. His grandmother had an orchard, and she canned her own fruits and vegetables. Along with a life-long interest in food, he has also been fascinated with building things. He opted to study design at the University of Florida at Gainesville, where he earned his Bachelor of Architecture. He went on to obtain his Master’s degree at the University of Virginia and has over 20 years of experience in the construction industry, which served him well in the building of his unique farm.

At Rahal Farms, Michael Rahal produces free-range eggs, artisanal cheeses and butter, and bread. He maintains ecologically sound farming practices that contribute to the delicious taste of his products. As his farm continues to expand, he has embarked on an exciting new project—The Center for Culinary Sustainability. At this retreat, visitors will be able to learn about where their food comes from. They will also practice sustainable farming techniques and prepare organic foods.

When Michael Rahal is not building awareness of ecologically sound farming, he is active in a variety of charitable pursuits. Through his farm, he provides food to homeless shelters operated by GraceWorks Ministries. His contributions to the Kiwanis Club have gone toward bicycles for children with disabilities. In addition, Rahal runs a health and wellness program that helps improve the lives of selected individuals each year.
