Region & Climate Butte County experiences a continental climate typical of much of the Intermountain West region of the United States with cold winters and hot summers, low precipitation, and a high number of sunny days. Annual snowfall can vary but tends to be moderate, especially in the higher elevations. History Eastern Idaho was settled primarily in the 1880’s and 1890’s mostly by Mormon Pioneers. The areas first settled were along the Bear River and Snake River and then up the tributaries. Irrigation was originally developed with river and creek water close to the sources. Reservoirs were built on the Snake River to provide storage water and large canal systems were developed. When wells became feasible, the irrigation development continued in the desert areas away from the river. Today, there are many commercial farm units with canal water or wells providing an inexpensive source of water. Location Moore is a small town located in Butte County, Idaho. Situated in the eastern part of the state, Moore is surrounded by the beautiful landscape of the Upper Snake River Valley. Agriculture is a significant part of the local economy in Moore and Eastern Idaho. The fertile soil and favorable climate support various crops, including potatoes, wheat, barley, and hay. Livestock operations, particularly cattle and sheep ranching, is also common in the region. Additionally, there are some dry farms in the higher valleys where there is adequate precipitation. While Butte County itself is predominantly rural and may not have many urban amenities within its borders, there are several nearby cities and towns where residents can access a variety of urban amenities. Located approximately 70 miles southeast of Butte County, Idaho Falls is the largest city in eastern Idaho. It offers a wide range of urban amenities, including shopping centers, restaurants, entertainment venues, cultural attractions, and medical facilities. Idaho Falls is also home to the Idaho Falls Regional Airport, providing convenient air travel access.
