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.

My Favorite Rice of All Time!!

This Blonde rice has a lovely texture and a wonderful lightly nutty flavor. Originally purchased for use as a sticky rice, this particular rice from Chico Rice has become my primary choice for all my cooking needs. This is my favorite rice of all time.
