Tribute to Idaho Agriculture: Agrarian Harvest


BUHL, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) — While this Buhl family may not have been around forever, they are Idaho through and through.

“I grew up on a farm in Kimberly and my wife grew up on a farm in Jerome,” said Agrarian Harvest’s John Klimes.

The Klimes own Agrarian Harvest in Buhl, a farm of just over 27 acres that houses a plethora of livestock and produce for Gem State customers.

“Beef, pork and chicken plus about 48 different varieties of produce including tomatoes, potatoes, cucumbers, peppers, green beans, peas and lettuce,” John said.

A life of farming in Idaho keeps the Klimes on their toes. And in years like this, when the cold weather persists well into May, they’re more than up for the challenge.

“We’re just waiting for the weather to do its thing so we know when we can plant things,” John said.

Klimes tells me it’s all about preparation and knowing that when nature presents you with a challenge, you just have to adapt.

“We can plan around that, and a lot of our starts develop in the cold frame, so they develop,” he said.

From the small farm in Buhl, the Klimes sell their produce throughout the state. If you want to get your hands on some, you might soon see them at a farmer’s market near you.

“We sell locally, we have online stores, we sell in the Wood River Valley. These are all Idaho products,” John said.

For the Klimes family, farming isn’t just about selling, it’s the way of life they’ve fallen in love with.

“It’s nice to have your own space and really enjoy what you’re doing,” John said.
