Meet the Farmers

We are Kyle, Chelsea, and Raylon, the farmers behind Dirt Poor Farm. Dirt Poor Farm is a small-scale, 20-acre, organically grown produce and meat farm located in Sweetwater, Tennessee, which offers both direct sales as well as a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program. Produce offered includes seasonal varieties of organically-grown produce, including customer-favorites such as mixed greens, tomatoes, okra, green beans, potatoes, and melons. We also offer USDA-certified, naturally-raised, hormone-free pork and beef. Our beef is pasture-fed year round and grain-finished, while our pork is pasture-raised and grain-fed. We are a Pick TN farm.

We started farming in 2016 with our little back yard garden. We were producing so much, we were constantly canning and freezing, so we decided to give the Farmer’s Market a go. We enjoyed it so much, that we moved to a 20-acre farm in Sweetwater in 2018 to allow for expansion. After moving, we started up our CSA program and expanded our farming practices to include pork and beef.

Farming is something we are passionate about and enjoy, and we love being able to give back to the community by providing fresh, local food. Our one-year-old son, Raylon, who was born with Down Syndrome, absolutely loves the farm life…especially his pigs! We have really tried to focus on instilling a passion for farming with him early on so that we can hopefully grow our farming business into something he can take over and enjoy some day.

We currently partner with two delivery services to provide fresh, locally-grown products to the East Tennessee Area. Same day delivery is available through Farm Grub, Inc.© for an additional fee to residents in Knox and Blount County. Weekly delivery is available for an additional fee to customers in Anderson, Blount, Campbell, Claiborne, Cocke, Grainger, Greene, Hamblen, Jefferson, Knox, Loudon, Roane, Sevier, and Union County through Market Wagon, LLC ©.

We look forward to providing you and your family with quality, farm-fresh products year round!
