Windy Hills Farm is a choose and cut Christmas tree farm located in the community of Ethel, Louisiana in East Feliciana Parish. This land was once part of a larger plantation which was divided up when it was sold. It was also the setting for the movie "Alvarez Kelly" filmed in the 1960's.
Besides Christmas trees, we also raise beef cattle. The farm is also home to numerous dogs, cats, chickens and other assorted fowl along with 2 overworked humans.
The first Christmas trees were planted at Windy Hills in January 1999. We began selling to the public in November 2002.

We will open for the 2016 season on Friday, November 25, 2016 at 10 am. We are not open on Thanksgiving Day. On Thanksgiving weekend we will be open Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from 10 am until 5pm
After that weekend, the farm will be open on Thursdays and Fridays from 1 until 5 pm and on Saturdays and Sundays from 10 am until 5 pm as long as we have trees available.
Please see our Facebook page for updates.
As of 12/12/16, the choose-and-cut part of our farm is closed. We have no more Leyland Cypress or Carolina Sapphire trees to be cut down. We do have some nice pre-cut Fraser firs left. They have been kept in water and well cared for. They will last through Christmas easily. The farm will not be open any more this season unless it is by appointment. If you would like a Fraser fir, please contact us via Facebook, email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or by telephone (225-683-6828). Again, we do not have ANY more Leyland Cypress or Carolina Sapphires that can be cut. We only have pre-cut Fraser firs. You MUST contact us ahead of time to make arrangements to come out. We would like to thank all of our customers for another wonderful year. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year,
