Windy Hill Farm offers East Tennessee’s best upland quail hunting and the opportunity to experience the beauty of nature at its finest. Near the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains in beautiful Loudon, Tennessee, Windy Hill Farm and Preserve is a Tennessee resort and hunting getaway that sits on 650 acres of rolling pasture near Knoxville, surrounded by two miles of shoreline along the Tennessee River.

Our History

“Big George” Sampson, our patriarch, acquired our East Tennessee home in 2000 and gave it the name Windy Hill for the wind that whips through the trees around the Water Tower hill.

Big George envisioned Windy Hill as a perfect place to continue his passion for cattle farming as well as an ideal setting to raise and educate the next generation of farmers and keepers of the land. Three generations of Big George’s descendants have operated the property under the same responsible stewardship principles he established upon acquiring Windy Hill.

Our Garden

Before the days of mega stores and groceries delivered to your door, the garden meant life and sustenance to those on the farm. It is our goal to honor that tradition by responsibly and sustainably sourcing as many of our ingredients from the garden and nearby farmers as possible. This all leads to the freshest of food right on your table for three meals per day included with your stay.

Our Animals

Our Tennessee farm is also an excellent source for grass fed beef and pork, which we cure ourselves through time-honored methods and painstaking care.
