The Billings Family

That's the gang! And it's growing bigger every year.

The Billings Family welcomes you to our farm. Mike and LeiLani both grew up on family farms in Washington state, so the country lifestyle runs deep in their veins. They met in Yakima, Washington where they courted and married (we're not telling how long ago!). In 1996 they moved to Shreveport with their five children to manage a small business. While things were going well with the business, the country life was calling to them and after a few years they leased some farm land near Dixie, Louisiana (11 miles north of Shreveport, LA on highway 71) with the intent to do a corn maze. Mike had heard of corn mazes from a family member back west and thought it might be just the thing to help move his family to the country and give his children an opportunity at some good hard work (there were now six kids). Both Mike and LeiLani remembered the chores and fresh air to be found in the country and wanted their children to be equally tortured! The corn maze was far more successful than they ever dreamed and after a few years of leasing land they bought their farm on Sentell Road in 2003. With their (now seven) children they plan, create and manage the fall corn maze festival which has grown to include the areas' only live on the vine pumpkin patch and many other attractions with more being added every year. In addition, we now have a 5k Mud Run held in October. The Mud Run is open to kids and adults alike! We also have beautiful watermelons and cantaloupe grown by the tons on our farm, along with other produce. Produce is available during the summer. Take a tour through our site, you might be surprised at all that DixieMaze Farms has to offer! The same family member who made us aware of doing a maze became a recent addition. Dee and Casie Adams and their children have joined the Dixie Maze family and we look forward to working together and creating a family friendly environment for anyone who visits. Thanks for visiting and we wish you a farmtastic day!
