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.

Due to overwhelming support from our customers, we are low on trees 9 ft tall and above. We have decided to open this Thursday and Friday from 1-5 pm. We will NOT open this weekend. Also, rain is forecast for the weekend. We are sorry to disappoint customers wanting to get a tree but we would rather close than have people drive all the way out and be disappointed in our tree selection. We do still have wreaths and garland. Please call and leave a message and we will do our best to accomodate you. Thank you for your support and we hope to see you next year! We are already getting ready to plant the new seedlings!
