The University of Idaho Agribusiness Incubator supports the creation, expansion and retention of locally owned agricultural enterprises. Its staff and physical resources are focused on the promotion of value-added ventures and local food networks.
The 22,000-square-foot facility includes 9,000 square feet of climate-controlled space for the emerging wineries of the Snake River Valley wine region.
The incubator assists the Food Technology Center staff in the recruitment, screening and advising of food clients and provides kitchen users with affordable post-production storage.
The incubator also houses two livestock service businesses, the Caldwell Economic Development Council, Foreign Trade Zone 280 and an outreach office of the Micro Enterprise Training and Assistance program.
