Life on Small Acreages

Are you new to Idaho? Are you a landowner? Do you need to learn the basics of

  • Soil
  • Water and water rights
  • Livestock
  • Weeds
  • Wildfire

In many parts of Idaho, people are enjoying rural life just past the edges of metropolitan city centers. But life on a small acreage is not all great views and beautiful sunsets. Whether your goals for your small acreage property are to raise a few livestock animals, create a productive hobby farm or just sit back and appreciate the wide-open spaces, land management issues can bring you back to reality in a hurry. 

Our Extension small acreage programs include in-depth courses, workshops, tours and consultations that empower small acreage landowners to solve their issues. Participants in our programs gain knowledge, implement best management practices, become more effective land stewards and successfully manage their natural resources.
