A little emotional this morning.
More than six years of passionately working to build a more sustainable local food system has came down to this.
The last load that we will ever have to pick up.
Most of these items will be sold in bulk boxes this week as we finish selling the rest of our inventory. Stay tuned for more announcements and details this afternoon. ... See MoreSee Less
You made a big contribution to the community, for six entire years! You still should be very proud.
Safe travels back to the farm. You have done an amazing job of bringing locally grown meat to our area. All the best in your future endeavors.
I’m so proud of all the hard work you and Jessica put into this

We really appreciate everyone being so patient and understanding. You guys have made this very difficult time much more manageable.
Our inventory is getting to a manageable level and the current plan is to hard count everything again Tuesday as we pickup the last meats from the processor.
This means everything we have available will be listed on our website and we can finish selling completely out.
We love you all and we are truly humbled by all the love and support we have received. ... See MoreSee Less
That bacon was awesome!!!
I hope everything works out for your family in whatever direction you go from here. I hope to see you some place down the road. Good luck to you all.
Enjoyed chatting while buying your eggs. Will look for you again at the next farmers market at Piper and Leaf Tea Co.
Mild Sausage, Hot Sausage, Sausage Patties, Boston Butts, Pork Chops, Bacon, Link Sausages and Ribs all back on the website.
We appreciate your patience during this time, today we have spent almost 18 hours just trying to keep inventory on the website long enough to serve customers here at the farm store. Come see us ... See MoreSee Less
Can I stop by the farm today to pick up some stuff?
Just a quick update:
We are headed home with all we could haul of the most beautiful meats we've ever had.
It will take longer than it ever has to get home with all this luck but eventually we will get there. ... See MoreSee Less

So place your orders today and have them delivered as soon as tomorrow.
We had the latest group or chicken delivered yesterday and I'm picking up up remaining pork and beef today These items will begin hitting the website this afternoon. If you are a CSA member please be looking for a separate email soon.
If you have any questions please feel free to contact us at any time.

What are you doing with the freezers?
Would love some steaks and roasts. Ribs and ham if possible. Thank you. May God direct your next steps. May it be smooth and less stressful.
My heart breaks for you and your family.
Can you post what all you have with prices. Ty and just remember when one door closes another opens even if we don’t understand why and even if it’s during a hard time. Prayers for your future endeavors.
So sorry for y'all. I enjoyed your family at the Decatur Farmer's Market. What is the link
Just ordered in Athens.
Interested in meat. Let me know what you have left. Thank you!
Do you have steaks 🥩?
What’s the delivery location restrictions?
Will you have pork belly ?

Will you be doing any local drop offs? Looks like we’re at 38mi but the sale online says “farm pickup.”
Unfortunately, after just over 6 years in business, we have had to make the difficult and painful decision to close the doors at DSR Farms.
Like it has been for so many others, the previous 15 months have been incredibly difficult for our family and our business.
One of the hardest things farms like ours go through is having to predict & plan what we will sell and how much to produce up to a year in advance. For instance the pork we are selling now was planned back in January of last year when we put the boars in with the sows
Ultimately, this season, we bit off more than we could chew. We made the best predictions and decisions we could based on 6 years of sales data and we simply over shot what the changing markets and current sales can financially sustain. This put our business into a deficit and there is no way we can sustainably recover.
We accepted early on that there was a tolerable amount of stress and anxiety that comes with small business owning, especially farming.
Over the past few months those emotional rollercoasters have increased in intensity and have taken a toll on our family.
This isn’t just a business, this is our identity, its who we are, every single day, all year long. It's not a hobby or just something we do on the side. From the clothes we wear, the vehicles we drive and the home we live in, every aspect of our lives revolve around this farm business. We, as a family had some really hard conversations and after all the tears and worry, we all agreed, even if there was a way to get back on track, we just cant continue putting ourselves through this anymore.
Going forward, this is a big wheel of production so it takes a while to get everything stopped. We will begin picking up the remaining products we have at the processors Today and tomorrow but these are the last loads for us.
Those items will begin hitting the website this afternoon and we will add Home delivery to the website for every day this week options for all orders over $100.
The first thing we have to do is focus on selling completely out of our inventory so that we can begin selling Freezers, Farms Store, Equipment and Livestock. The farm store will be open all week and we will be here selling in person every day. ( I will make a separate post detailing those sales and specials).
There are so many unknown’s at the moment but one thing is for sure, we love you all from the bottom of our hearts and we are truly better for having known so many of you.
For several years now you have all made a conscious decision to pay more for the food that you feed your family, in order to support a regenerative food production system and KNOW YOUR FARMER. The money you spent on our products each week allowed us the opportunity to be self employed, at home with our children everyday and for that, Jessica, Myself, Dallas,Shelby & Raven will be forever grateful.
Thank you all so much for supporting us for so long.
We hope to see you all sometime this week. ... See MoreSee Less

Oh I am so, so sad to hear this for you guys! Prayers going up for you all going forward! ❤️❤️
Sure hate to hear this! I know it has been brutal with the Pandemic. If you over over in the north part of Madison County this week let me know
Is there a way we can get a gofundme running for you? Seems the community would rather dig in for you than see you go? I know I’ve loved your product and we always enjoy your conversation and positive energy. I don’t know anything about setting up the go fund me but I’d contribute to one.
This breaks my heart. We are so appreciative for everything you've offered our community ♥️ I hope this next season brings you guys peace, quality time, and much needed rest ♥️
I hate to see this happen ,but I'm greatfull for all the things you have taught me even though you don't really know me. Thank you for that.
So sad to hear this. We have been fans for a few years. How devastating 2020 was is not fully known.
Sometimes the hardest decisions we have to make in life and in business lead us in a direction that is better than before. Believing blessing of abundance to you and your family.
I am so sorry. I know this was an agonizing decision. Prayers for your family and your next journey.
We are very sorry to hear this and wish y'all the best of luck.
We love you guys so much. 💜
We are so sad! You have been an amazing asset to North Alabama, and you will be missed. ❤️ I completely trust you to do what’s best for your sweet family. You will be in my prayers as you start on a new path. Big Hugs!
wish you nothing but the best in your future endeavors
This is so sad. My heart does break for yall to have to make this decision. My family when I was a kiddo, were farmers. It is not as easy as folks think. Bless yall for sticking with things and showing your children bits of Mother Nature.
I hate to see yall go, but I understand you have to do what's best for the family. We wish you all the best in whatever comes next for your sweet family. Thank you all for your hard work, dedication, and wonderful meats that you have provided for us since we moved here a year ago.
May God guide and keep you in your journey forward.
I am truly sorry.God bless you and your family and what ever the future holds.
You will bounce back bro. Keep your head up and stay positive! You have so much to be proud of!!
This breaks my heart! I have so enjoyed everything that I have bought from you. I wish you the best. I will see you this week for sure.
My husband & I enjoyed meeting you Saturday at the farmer’s market in Madison. It’s a shame we didn’t meet you earlier in your journey!
So glad I could support them today. Left with 50 lbs of meat and headed back for more tomorrow. Bless them and help them during this time !;))))). 💕💕💕. We will surely miss them.
I am sorry to hear that! You have provided a wonderful opportunity for our family to buy high quality, ethically sourced meat. You’ve done important work for the past six years and will be missed.
So very sorry for you. Wishing you the best for the future.
Jesse - you and your sweet family have given special meaning to "know your farmer, know our food". You have been our favorite farmer since meeting you years ago, and visiting your farm, meeting Jessica, your girls - your first little flock of chickens, your dairy cow, and of course, Timber 😀 And while this news is incredibly sad, we know that things just have a way of working out. You and your family will come out of this with a new life "adventure" that will bring you security and happiness. Love you! ❤
We wish the very best for your family moving forward. Love from Decatur.love 💔
