If Taste Buds Could Talk

Great flavor!

“We were given a bag of blonde Chico Rice as part of a gift basket and we are now hooked! This rice has great flavor and texture, and as a vegan who eats my fair share of rice. Chico Rice is now an integral part of my weekly meals. Recommend.”

Absolutely delicious, even plain.

“This rice has a fresh, sweet aroma straight out of the bag. Wow! It cooks up with a hearty, slightly sticky texture that works well in our family recipes and also stands wonderfully on its own. Leftover Chico Rice never lasts long in this house--it's absolutely delicious, even plain.

 

I'm careful with what I feed my family and appreciate a flavorful product that is so carefully grown and processed.”

La Tigresa

I absolutely LOVE this rice!!

"Not all rice is created equal! It is so sweet and flavorful that you don't have to put anything on it. If you're a picky rice eater like myself then you must try it!"

From Our Family Farm to Your Family's Kitchen

For four generations we have been farming this land, and as a father and son team we’re carrying on our family’s legacy to grow some of the finest rice in the world.

You’ll find our farm nestled in the Sacramento Valley of Northern California surrounded by rich soil, fresh water and plenty of sunshine. To the north the majestic Mount Shasta towers like a snowcapped diamond shining brilliantly over the entire valley. To our south stand the quaint Sutter Buttes, known as the smallest mountain range in the world. To the east, the rugged Sierra Nevada mountains host the rising sun, watching it pass over the vast California sky until it hides behind the sprawling Coastal Range. From dawn to dusk the sun gently kisses our land, allowing us to be one of the finest places on earth to grow rice.

As some of the only farmers who grow, mill, and pack their own rice, you will know exactly where it comes from and how it was grown - responsibly, sustainably, and with the utmost love and care.
