About Hunter Farms

In 1971, Hunter Farms was established by Wil and Connie Hunter in Livingston, CA. Over the years, Wil and Connie continued to grow their operations and eventually added the help of their son, Scott in 1992. Hunter Farms currently raises almonds and pistachios throughout Merced County in the towns of Livingston, Snelling and Atwater.

In 2011, Hunter Farms acquired the Trindade Dairy property located just east of Buhach on the south side of Southern Pacific Avenue in Atwater. Almond trees were planted on the front acreage of the property and pumpkins were planted around the historic 100 year old hay barn located on the south side of the ranch. Hunter Farms Pumpkin Patch opened its doors to the public for its first season in October of 2013 offering many varieties of pumpkins for purchase along with free hayrides, a hay pyramid, kid’s sandbox, trike track, critter corral and a 5-acre corn maze. The pumpkin patch received a great response from the community keeping both the Hunter family and staff busy with pumpkin sales, educational field trips, youth group visits, birthday parties and special harvest dinners. Thanks to the overwhelming response their first season, Hunter Farms Pumpkin Patch added the Time Travel Tractor attraction and a rustic water wheel photo spot for the 2014 season. The Time Travel Tractor Ride has guests board colorful trailers and travel back in time to visit an 1849 gold mine, a Native American Sioux tribe and the age of dinosaurs. Given the popularity of the Time Travel Tractor, additional dinosaurs and their habitat were added for the 2015 season as well as retrofitting our sandbox into a dino dig. Also new for the 2015 season was the addition of Hunter Farms Mining Company. The mining company attraction allows miners to purchase their own bag of “pay dirt” to pan for gems and artifacts in our replica 1849 sluice box. New in 2016 was the addition of the Barnyard Bounce. This 80-foot long inflatable pillow allows critters of all ages to jump with their family and friends.

As a small boy, Farmer Wil’s Grandpa lovingly called him Billykens. So when our half acre Wild West oversized shooting gallery was installed, it was named Billykens’ Blasters as a nod to Grandpa. At Billykens’ Blasters, attraction goers trade their token for “ammo” and then get a cannon. Then they can choose which favorite outlaw or critter to “blast.” Watch out for the skunk….he’s a stinker!

The Hunter family is delighted to provide the community with a unique, fun and affordable location for all to enjoy the harvest season. Our goal is to offer an agricultural setting that promotes a focus on family and provides activities that encourages both children and adults to act like kids.

Thank you for your support.
