Wild rice is a species of grass that sprouts a grain. This grain is the wild rice we harvest. It looks and cooks like rice, so that’s what we call it!
It has a stronger taste than white or brown rice, and a more intricate texture. Our wild rice is organic, and gluten free. Wild rice is high in dietary fibre, protein, magnesium, manganese, and phosphorous.
The wild rice we harvest was introduced to our clean land and water in the 1970s. Wild rice has been a staple food for Indigenous people in central Canada and the US for thousands of years.
