Bultfontein was established in 1874 on one side of the farm, Kameeldoorns. Bultfontein is in a mainly farming district that gets its water from the Sand-Vet irrigation system. Several farmers in the district breed pedigree cattle; Herefords, Limousins and Fries/Holsteins. Other interesting farming activities include the cultivation of cut flowers on the farm Rondepan, 10 km east of the town on the Theunissen Road.
