DSR Farms started in 2015 by Jesse and Jessica Murphy. DSR stands for the first letter in each of our daughters name. Dallas, Shelby, and Raven. We started this farm to be able to work side by side and teach our children the value of hard work.
We raise all of our animals on pasture. We strive to raise them in their natural environment. We feed a certified Non-GMO feed from Resaca Sun Feeds in Resaca, Georgia.
Our cows are grass finished which simply means grass fed. We say grass finished because not all of our cows were born here on our farm. We feel it would simply not be honest to market them as 100% grass fed. We practice rotational grazing and move our cows every. single. day. In winter we feed hay that was grown right here on the land the cows live on.
Our meat chickens are raised on pasture and fed the non-GMO feed. They live in a brooder from two day old chicks until 3 to 4 weeks of age. We then move them to pasture where they will be moved to fresh grass twice a day every day until they go to be processed.
Our laying hens are also fed a Non-GMO feed. We have a rebuilt cotton wagon that we made into a mobile coop. We use poultry netting to keep predators out. They are moved about once a week depending on the weather.
The pigs are raised outside on pasture their entire life. They are rotated to fresh paddocks as needed.
If you have any questions or would like to visit the farm please contact us. As we are a working farm it may take a day or so to get back to you or some weeks we just do not have time to host farm visits, but we will do our best to get you in! So please be patient with us.
