We are happy to announce that we now offer Minnesota wild rice! Members of Jim’s family have been harvesting wild rice for years. So this past summer, Jim and I joined them and learned all about how to harvest wild rice. It was hard work, but also a lot of fun. It was amazing to watch these experienced wild rice harvesters traverse through the wetlands as they gently and skillfully hand-harvested the kernels off the stock and filled their canoes with ripe rice.
Since we Jim and I are beginners, our overall contribution to the harvest was very small. But we know we will get better at it with more practice in the years to come.
Our hand-harvested Minnesota wild rice is now available through our website store, plus you’ll find a collection of favorite recipes as well. What better holiday gift than Minnesota wild rice, Minnesota maple syrup, and Minnesota honey?!
