Beautiful views, Idaho traditions,
responsible development


Founding Principles

We recognize the importance and beauty of this land.

We commit to responsibly develop the Dry Creek Ranch neighborhood, ensuring its aesthetics and uses blend with the landscape and local wildlife. We will preserve the beauty and natural attributes of these 1,400 acres. 

Dry Creek Ranch will honor the agricultural history of this area and invest in conserving its natural resources.

Dry Creek Ranch will promote an active lifestyle to its residents by providing miles of trails, an equestrian facility, a community farm, and community centers for leisure and play.

Dry Creek Ranch will add value to the surrounding communities, through its thoughtful features and quality design.



Julius and Anna Jeker arrived in Idaho from Switzerland in the early 1900’s.

After nearly 25 years of renting farmland on what is now Harris Ranch, they decided to invest in their own ranch. So, in the 1930’s the Jeker’s purchased and subsequently farmed what is now Dry Creek Ranch.

Upon Julius' death in 1951, the ranch was passed along to Julius Jeker, Julius' son. The land stayed in the family for decades, until, in 2005 it was sold to an out-of-state development group, who had received approval from Ada County to construct 3,500 residential units and 650,000 SqFt of commercial space.

In 2016, Boise Hunter Homes acquired the land, including the entitlements (building approvals) that had been granted. However they had a different vision for Dry Creek Ranch, as the previously planned development was too dense, too urban, and inconsistent with surrounding properties. After substantially scaling back plans, Boise Hunter Homes sought and received an amendment to the project approval that had been granted by the County.  

To honor its history, Dry Creek Ranch will feature a park named after Julius and Anna Jeker.


"They (Dry Creek Ranch) have lowered the density and increased the lot sizes from the previous developer, and allowed for more open space.…I feel the project will be an asset to the community and good for the growth of North Boise." - Judy
"The proposal will improve the roadways, which is greatly needed." - Doug
"We were opposed to the former development, but we believe Boise Hunter Homes understands and respects the area and desires of those that treasure living in this wonderful valley." - Richard and Rhonda
"The large lots, the open spaces and the amenities give it the feel of a rural community, rather than a subdivision or "planned community". As a neighbor, I am in favor of this project." - Terry
