Ten Mile Farm is a small, family-owned farm located just outside the city limits of Lancaster, Texas. We sell delicious, healthful brown and blue/green eggs from our free-range chickens. We currently have four breeds of chickens: Barred Rocks (a descendant of the heritage breed Plymouth Rock), Rhode Island Reds, Silver-Laced Wyandottes, and Easter Eggers. We allow them to range freely all over our property, and they do a great job of keeping the bug population in check. We feed them premium, all natural feed, and our research shows that this healthy diet helps produce eggs that are lower in cholesterol. We take a page from Blue Bell Ice Cream's philosophy when it comes to the eggs - that is, we eat all we can and we sell the rest.

Schedule and Location:
Please call Lynnette at 214-616-6961 to make arrangements to come to the farm to pick up fresh eggs. We live, work, and play here, so we're home most of the time. If you get voice mail, we're probably just out feeding the animals or working in the garden, so please leave a message!
