A Happy and Healthy Medium

The Goldilocks of Rice

For those who prefer the taste and texture of white rice but avoid it in favor of more nutrient-rich brown rice, haiga-mai style rice is the best of both worlds!

Our Blonde Milled California Japonica is semi-polished in the haiga-mai style in which only some of the outer bran layer is removed, retaining the nutritious and oil-rich germ prized by health-conscious fans of brown rice.

The result is an easily digestible, quickly-cooking grain with the subtle, delicate flavor and smooth texture of white rice and much of the vitamins, minerals, and oils of unpolished brown rice.

Small Batch Freshness

Our Artisan Rice Mill produces small batches, so you'll always receive rice that's as fresh as possible with the most flavor and the best texture.

Stewardship of the Land

Committed to sustainability since 1928. We blend the crop residue back into the soil to build soil structure. We avoid burning the fields post-harvest, so that we can create habitats for wildlife to preserve air, soil, and water purity for generations to come.

Satisfaction Guarantee

All our products come with a 30-Day Money Back Guarantee, just contact us and we'll make it right.

Juiciest, tastiest rice

Brown rice is a staple in my household. I’ve tried every variety from every grocery store. Nothing compares to the California Japonica from Chico Rice. The rice is so flavorful and has the nicest texture and consistency. Fluffy with the perfect amount of bite. I’ve used it in healthy grain bowls, alongside salmon and asparagus, and in stir fries. It’s a little more expensive than buying brown rice from the grocery store, but Chico Rice is worth it. It superior in quality and taste, and I wouldn’t want my family eating any other way.

We’ve been eating Chico rice since we discovered it years ago. I’ve been checking weekly to see when it will be available again. Just wanted to say we love it and appreciate all you’re doing to get it to us. Happy Fall. ❤️

Everything everyone says about this rice is spot on. We love it and...so do the mice in the cold cellar. They gnawed right in and feasted. Caveat emptor. I just reordered and it's going in a vault.

Awesome rice. I grew up eating white calrose rice, and looked high and low to find an organic producer that didn't just sell it in tiny little bags. I stumbled upon Chico, and now I'm regularly ordering 20 pound bags every few months. At first I wasn't sure how the blonde haiga-mai style would compare to the more polished white varieties, but it's delicious and the texture is nice and fluffy. Thanks for shipping all the way to east coast!

I purchased your rice from Amazon a few weeks back and my family loved it! My dad had diabetes and found that it didn’t raise his glucose levels like other rices do. We loved it so much that I placed an order for a 20 pound bag for the Blonde/white rice.
