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.
