The Hunter Farm

The Hunter Farm
13624 Providence Road

Built circa 1868, the house has been home to five generations of the Hunter Family, where we have lived, loved and laughed together on the front porch.

Except for a tour in the Navy, Jim, the fourth of five children, worked the land all his life.

In 1992, his niece, Nancy DeLaney Anderson and her husband Andy, moved back to the farm after retiring from the military to raise their four children.

In 2002, the family placed the farm into the Catawba Lands Conservancy, a land trust that permanently protects it from development, preserving it for generations to come.

Each spring, the surrounding communities eagerly await the ripening of the strawberry crop. The farm is noted for it's unusually sweet and delicious Pick-Your-Own strawberries. The picking season runs through late April through the end of May and is the site of much activity.

Fall is especially busy as pumpkins are harvested. Educational farm tours that include hayrides with stops at the milk barn, petting barn and pumpkin patch are the highlight of the fall season.

Christmas comes early when the tree lot opens on Thanksgiving day. Fresh cut NC Frazier Furs, greenery and wreaths are available. A horse drawn wagon ride takes children of all ages to visit Santa at the barn.
