Melba is a small farming community, nestled in the Snake River Valley of Southwest Idaho. This town is surrounded by vast agricultural lands growing a diverse variety of crops which include potatoes, beans, sugar beets, onions, corn and grain. Known as The Seed Heart of America, Melba area farmers excel in growing seed crops for onions, carrots, peas, beans and sweet corn seed as well as alfalfa and clover.
We 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 “asphalt jungles.” Although small, our community offers all the amenities that retirees or a growing family needs, such as community celebrations, great public K-12 schools, a grocery store, restaurants, several church denominations, QRU facilities, a local fire district, and our own medical and dental clinics. Major medical services and shopping malls are available 20 minutes away in nearby Nampa with excellent highway access.
This area is a sportsman’s dream come true, due to the close proximity of fishing in streams, rivers and mountain lakes, camping, boating, hunting, hiking, horseback riding, snow and water skiing, and other sport opportunities.
