Owners / Founders
Daryl Hunnicutt is a fourth-generation farmer and one of Preferred Popcorn’s original owners. He has been raising popcorn for 35 years with a constant focus on using sustainable methods of crop production. His farms are located in the fertile Platte River Valley of central Nebraska, where he and his two sons continue to raise some of our finest popcorn. He was initially interested in Preferred Popcorn as a way to add value to a crop he was raising on his own farm. Now, he likes being able to meet and work with people from all parts of the world, and enjoys providing people with a food product that’s fun to eat.
