Wild Rice - Minnesota Wild Rice

Hand-picked wild rice is generally regarded as the best-tasting wild rice on the market. The process of manually harvesting wild rice using basic hand tools and push-pole navigation is a custom that originated many, many years ago by the Native Americans.

The traditional methods that they utilized are still being followed today. The amount of wild rice that is harvested can vary from year to year, depending upon various factors that include the general weather during the growing period and the number of rice harvesters.

Commercially cultivated and harvested wild rice makes up the majority purchased in retail stores. Due to the efficiency of the growing and harvesting processes, prices are typically lower than hand-picked wild rice. Commercially grown wild rice is generally darker in color than hand-picked wild rice.
