Local Harvest Grocery is happy to offer Brown Rice from Martin Rice Company. Martin Rice is grown in Bernie, Missouri. I met Mr. Martin himself at the Governor’s Conference on Agriculture a couple of weeks ago. He was handing out bags and bags of rice and promoting the Missouri Rice Research and Merchandising Council. It was exciting to meet him (I sometimes act like some of our farmers are rock stars) and to find out what happened to the fantastic Jasmine rice they used to carry. Apparently the Jasmine crops they planted all failed. “No one was more upset then we were” he said to me. Can’t wait to get it again. It was extremely aromatic, light, and flavorful.
The brown rice came in a week or so ago. This is the first time we’ve had brown rice from Martin Rice and I know many of you will be happy to finally have a local brown rice.
If you haven’t tried this rice it is very flavorful and as a bonus it comes in this super cool and very reusable canvas bag. We sell 2 lb bags for 3.99.
