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.
Our community offers all the amenities for retirees and 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 hour’s drive, hunting some of the finest game around, snow and water skiing, and other sport opportunities.
The Western Alliance provides economic development services for the City of Wilder, giving assistance with grants and land use applications. We also provide assistance with small business development
