Rice, Wild, Transitional *Local*

Arrowhead Wild Rice comes from a small family farm outside of Mt. Angel, Oregon. It is processed on the farm.

Wild rice is an aquatic grass seed in the cereal grain family and is one of the most nutritious whole grains available. Its properties are much like oats and wheat. It is high in protein and low in fat.

With it's smoky, nut-like flavor and chewy texture, wild rice is delicious in stuffing, as a side dish, or featured as a cold salad mixed with cranberries, nuts, feta cheese and other grains.

To cook Wild Rice: 1 part wild rice and 3-4 parts liquid. Bring water to a boil, add wild rice and cook for 35 to 40 minutes or until texture is soft, not squishy. Drain off excess water. Use plenty of water. Unlike regular rice you don’t want to cook the water out.

What we mean by 'transitional': When a farm shifts some or all of its acreage from commercial to Organic growing methods, this begins a three year process known as the transition period. It encompasses learning new skills and gaining Organic farm experience as well as transition of the land.
