Wilder is a small farming community which is nestled in the western side of Canyon County, Idaho near the Oregon border. The city is surrounded by vast agricultural lands growing a diverse variety of crops which include potatoes, sugar beets, onions, corn, grain, and mint. This area is unique in one crop, as it is known for growing “hops” which are used in the brewing of beer. Wilder has a population hovering around 1,620.
Our community offers all the amenities that retirees or a growing family needs, such as Community celebrations, great public schools, K – 12, a library, restaurants, several church denominations, QRU facilities, local fire district, and our own medical clinic. Major medical services and shopping malls are available 10 -20 miles away in nearby Nampa/Caldwell with excellent highway access. This area is a sportsman’s dream come true, due to the close proximity of a local golf course, fishing in streams and mountain lakes, camping within an hours drive, hunting some of the finest game around, snow and water skiing, and other sport opportunities.
We are proud of our city and would like to extend a warm welcome to those thinking of purchasing a new home or just relocating out of the hectic life of the city. Our community is experiencing growth with several new housing developments in our area to offer affordable housing to those who would enjoy rural living with the “big city atmosphere” of Boise only miles away, should you desire some added excitement. “Come Grow With Us.”
