The popular local Farmstead saw national attention this year – when it carved its signature corn maze into a pattern featuring NBC’s Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon.  That caught the attention of the late night host – who sent his Hashtag The Panda character out to Idaho to skydive into the maze.

But will the Farmstead hold down the fort at its prime Eagle & I-84 location much longer?

The land under the corn field and agri-entertainment business is on the block. The large, 51-acre parcel, is surrounded by explosive development – and sits at one of the area’s largest interchanges.

Immediately south of the property, Norco plans to anchor a new commercial development, and a new road connecting Overland Rd. with both properties is in the works.

The Farmstead has already closed for the 2016 season – so will it return?  Owners are tight-lipped.


“The land where we operate The Farmstead has been for sale for quite some time,” Hilary Lowe of the Farmstead said by email. “There’s no news beyond that.”

This is the Farmstead’s second stint at Eagle and I-84. From 2006 until 2010, the business moved to Kuna before heading back to the freeway spot.

The property is owned by Idaho Elks Rehab according to public records, and is listed at $12-million, but could be sold in pieces.  Agents with Thornton Oliver Keller note that more than 200,000 people live within a 5-mile radius of the site.
