We live on a small farm in the country about an hour from Kings Canyon National park and 1.5 hours to the south entrance of Yosemite. We have goats, chickens (including a rooster), cats and dogs who patrol the property and as such, it can be lively and noisy at times. We live directly across from an active citrus farm set up and therefore orchard fans (running continuously at night in frost season) and other farm equipment may be in use during your stay. There is wonderful produce all around and many great day trips you can take to Forestiere Underground Gardens, the Blossom Trail and more. If you are visiting during the Spring/Summer, there are many local fruit stands to buy juicy strawberries (April/May) and peaches/stone fruit (June - August). We'd be happy to point you in that direction. Parlier also boasts some wonderful Mexican food. We have a local place that sells street tacos for $1.75 each that is a favorite easy meal option (Taqueria Zihuatenajo located at 13129 Parlier St). Suggested Local Attractions:Yosemite National Park Kings Canyon National Park Sequoia National Park Foresterie Underground Gardens Pinchushion Mountain

    A very easy overnighter as long as you are a good backer upper :-) Nestled in an orange grove off the beaten path added up to a great night rest. We pulled in late and left early so not much time to explore. The doggies we great greeters when we rolled in

    We had a great stay here for a day trip to Kings Canyon and Sequoia NP. The well levelled spot is quiet at the end of the property. We highly recommend this spot for further stays.

    We stayed one night passing through the Parlier area. Riley Hilscher pulled up as we arrived and welcomed us to his farm. We backed our 25’ motorhome between the chicken and an animal pen. It was pleasant having the rooster wake us up this morning. Riley and his family enjoy boondocking and decided to open up their farm to Harvest Host. We enjoyed chatting with Riley. We were allowed to run our generator to power our AC since it was mid-nineties. The three farm dogs led by “Trouble” the Australian Sheppard welcomed us. The farm is surrounded by orchards and we drove about 7 miles from Hwy 99 to the farm. Thanks to the Hilscher family.

    Hilscher Farm is a great overnight if you’re traveling through the Fresno area. The hosts were great communicators for the logistics of getting in and set up. It was our first time running our generator and the temps were up to 110F during the day so it was nice they let us run our generator all night to keep cool. The farm dogs were very friendly and you get the full experience when the rooster starts crowing at 5am! Nice stay.
