The Hunter Farm
The Hunter Farm has been in the same family since 1868. Farmer Nancy’s great grandmother was raised here, and the farm has been passed down on her mother’s side since. While the operations of the farm have certainly changed over the years – from cash crops to dairy cattle to small scale agritourism – it has always existed as a place its community could call home.
In 1991, after retiring from the United States Air Force, farmer Nancy and her husband Andy moved back to her mother’s farm. Together, they raised their four kids and helped Nancy’s aging uncle with the evolving farming operation.
Today the Hunter Farm serves as a small scale agritourism business, offering a space for the community to reconnect with the land and its animals, and experience a seasonal, working farm. The remaining acreage has been placed in a conservation easement, protecting it from any future commercial or residential development thanks to our valuable partnership with Catawba Lands Conservancy. Truly a forever farm!
Farmers Nancy and Andy still live on the farm and welcome their children and grandchildren back often to work and to play. If you’ve visited, you’ve likely met many of them! The Hunter Farm is truly a family business, and we look forward to continuing the legacy of generations past.
