Statewide, a typical Idaho farm will have approximately 454 acres. Southern Idaho receives less rain than Northern Idaho (12 inches verses 25 inches comparatively). Southern Idaho is therefore considered a ‘high desert,’ and crops require irrigation systems. This much-needed water comes from miles of irrigation, which is composed of canals, drainage ditches, dams, and reservoirs throughout the state. Some of the first irrigation systems in Idaho were made in 1855 in Lemhi Valley and are still being used today.
Agriculture in Idaho grew in importance during and after the 1860s, and it surpassed mining as the leading economic activity thirty years later. Today, agriculture continues to be the most important industry in the state. Both Northern and Southern Idaho hold an important part of the global agricultural economy.
With over twelve million acres dedicated to farm land, Idaho has a successful agriculture industry, and its most well-known crop is the potato. Over 320,000 of these acres in Idaho are dedicated to potatoes. In fact, potatoes contribute $550 million to $700 million annually to Idaho’s economic portfolio. But Idaho farms are not limited to potatoes. Other popular crops include mint, barley, hay, corn, onions, and sugar beets - and that’s only naming a few!
Some areas of the state have adopted a specific crop, whether it simply grows best there or is otherwise identified with the place. Canyon County, for example, produces 90% of the world’s sweet corn seed.
Idaho farm land includes orchards as well. The first commercial orchard was founded in 1863, set in just 15 acres of Lewiston, Idaho. Originally just distributed to mining camps, this orchard quickly advanced into 6,000 acres of trees producing apples, cherries, pears, peaches, plums, and even almonds.
Today, however, most of the orchards in Idaho are located in Southwest Idaho. In fact, one of Boise’s well-known parks, Julia Davis Park, used to be an orchard. Thomas Davis donated the land to the city under the promise it would be a public park, naming it after his late wife Julia. Before becoming a park, the orchard was known for growing pears, apples, peaches, blackberries, and plums.
As fruit became a more popular export in Idaho, it also became a more common use of farm land. Today there are many cities with orchards including Council, Weiser, Indian Valley, Payette, Emmett, Caldwell, and Fruitland.
Events In Idaho
There are many annual events in Idaho meant to celebrate the state’s agricultural history. These festivals and fairs have existed in some iteration for decades, even centuries! But they’re still some of the most popular summer pastimes.
Western Idaho Fair
The Western Idaho Fair lasts about two weeks at the end of August and has existed since 1897. It was originally a fair meant to connect cities to Idaho’s capital, focusing on bringing together Idaho’s major departments: livestock, domestic manufacturing, and agriculture. Though originally a method through which locals could display their crops and animals, the Western Idaho Fair has evolved to include other activities like shows and rides, as well as some of Idaho’s most well-known fair food.
Snake River Stampede
This began as a small rodeo that was attached to a Nampa harvest festival in 1913. As the rodeo grew in popularity, it split off to become its own event in 1937 and converting to a night show. Eventually, it joined the Rodeo Cowboys Association and grew into an official rodeo. Today, the Snake River Stampede is a popular event for both the regular Idaho resident as well as professional cowboys throughout the United States.
Caldwell Night Rodeo
Caldwell Night Rodeo began to commemorate Boise’s irrigation system. The first Caldwell Night Rodeo was hugely popular and has continued to draw in tens of thousands of people every year. Cowboys, both professional and rookie, have entered the competition for the chance to show off their skills and win one of the various competitions. Caldwell Night Rodeo is now one of the top twenty professional rodeos in America.
