Riverside is a wonderful place to raise a family. Only 5 minutes from Blackfoot, 26 miles from Pocatello, and 31 miles from Idaho Falls, you are in the country but you have access to municipal needs. People don’t come to Riverside to live in a city, but we all love shopping, dining, and entertainment reasonably close. Two bus stops to INL are 1½ miles away, one with full-day, free parking. But raising a family is about family time.
Teaching your children the value of work, earning, and running a business.
For six years, this property has been known locally as KC Berries. My children learned to work hard in their own berry farm. They learned how to manage money. They learned how to contact people, to fill orders, to operate a small business. This type of experience is difficult to come by, but the berry farm land is available for your own small family operation. There are numerous cash crops that people beg to have grown locally. What if you and your children planted strawberries, asparagus, raspberries, pumpkins, or even a full local produce farm. Your children will use their summer time learning to create budgets, contact customers, see the literal fruits of their labors.
And, if you want to expand, you have more than six acres in which to grow with plenty of parking area.
We have been able to produce beautiful gardens year after year. One of the things you will love is the quiet, peaceful summer mornings or evenings spent in the garden. Have you ever noticed that when you work in the garden, you don’t get bothered? I love it. You will too.
This home, being 250 yards off the main road, is quiet. The sunset and calm summer evenings provide some of the best family memories, roasting hot dogs and ‘smores’ over the fire.
Behind the home is ample space for livestock. Many are looking for horse property. This property is ideal. It is small enough to provide plenty of running space for horses. With both houses, you could easily plant alfalfa so you always have plenty of feed.
If you would like to have a place to teach children to work, a place to run and play safely away from roads and other dangers, a place to build character, this is where you want to raise your family.
