Meet the Farmers

We are Kyle, Chelsea, Raylon, and Gentry, the farmers behind Dirt Poor Farm. Dirt Poor Farm is a small-scale, 20-acre, organically-grown produce farm located in Sweetwater, Tennessee, which offers direct sales, delivery, and 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 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 our CSA program which has grown to cover 29 counties across Tennessee and Georgia.

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 son, Raylon, who was born with Down Syndrome, and daughter, Gentry, absolutely love the farm life! We have really tried to focus on instilling a passion for farming in them early on so that we can hopefully grow our farming business into something they can take over and enjoy some day.

We currently partner with two delivery services to provide fresh, locally-grown products to the East Tennessee and Northwest Georgia Areas.
