We develop general counting formulae for primary fields in free four dimensional (4D) scalar conformal field theory (CFT). Using a duality map between primary operators in scalar field theory and multi-variable polynomial functions subject to differential constraints, we identify a sector of holomorphic primary fields corresponding to polynomial functions on a class of permutation orbifolds. These orbifolds have palindromic Hilbert series, which indicates they are Calabi-Yau. We construct the top-dimensional holomorphic form expected from the Calabi-Yau property. This sector includes and extends previous constructions of infinite families of primary fields. We sketch the generalization of these results to free 4D vector and matrix CFTs.
