Idaho agriculture is flourishing. In fact, it is the single largest contributor to Idaho’s economy, accounting for 20% of Idaho’s gross state product each year. Our agricultural production regularly sets and breaks records for cash receipts. Food and beverage processing is the state’s second largest manufacturing sector.
Idaho’s 25,000 farms and ranches produce more than 185 different commodities, and we’re ranked in the top 10 in the U.S. for production of more than 25 crops and livestock. How do we do it? Idaho’s perfect climate, cutting edge technology, extensive irrigation systems, transportation networks, and most important—skilled and hard-working people. That’s the bounty of Idaho.
