About Us
Ten Horse Farm is a small family farm just outside of Bainbridge, GA specializing in Silver Queen sweet corn, Sadandy field peas, pecans, and figs. Ten Horse Farm is operated by the 4th generation of family owners, who recently returned the property to its original farming roots.

Originally, Ten Horse Farm grew row crops such as cotton, peanuts, field corn, sweet corn, soybeans, and sugar cane. Figs and timber, not to mention a multitude of garden vegetables, were also grown on the farm. Turpentine was produced from the Slash pine forest. The farm raised cattle, hogs and chickens. The community even produced cream and butter which supplied the local hotels and restaurants.

In the early days, farms were not measured by how many acres they contained - but by how many horses it took to farm them. Thus the name Ten Horse Farm! It was about as large as a sustainable farm could get with the available resources used to support the working community and farm operations.

Established in approximately 1912, Ten Horse Farm used some of the most progressive agricultural development and farming practices of the early 20th century. Ten Horse Farm was first in the area to plant pine tree forests and pecan orchards as crops, and among the first to install terraces in pastures to prevent erosion.
It is the goal of the 4th generation owner to continue the legacy of Ten Horse Farm using the same no herbicide, low fertilizer input and, in most cases, no synthetic insecticide.

For example, we have developed proprietary organic practices to grow our sweet corn using no pesticides or insecticides. We prepare the soil, plant, and cultivate our produce using 3 point hitch tractors and agricultural implements. Among the four tractors used is an original 1946 Farmall M tractor with pull type implements. Everything we sell on Red Hills Online Market is harvested by hand.
