Each year wild rice is parched and hulled to perfection. You can count on our wild rice to be the best quality and flavor.
Made/Produced by American Indians

Savage Family Farm and Artists
Creation stories found in oral tradition recount how the Anishinabe (Ojibwe) were introduced to manoomin, 'the food that grows on water'. Families continue to care for manomin throughout the year and celebrate the anticipation of a good harvest. (Artwork by Karen Savage-Blue)

Harvesting wild rice is a part of Anishinabe way of life. Roasting wild rice is equally challenging. Knowledge of consistency and how the environment can affect your product requires a recipe. Bruce and the young people he has mentored have put in many hours perfecting the process. Thank you for your business and patience as we work to bring you vibrant food products.
Visionary work to honor Anishinabe food
Bruce belives in hardwork and consistency toward goals that honor the practices of finishing wild rice in order for families to enjoy a traditional food source. Each season has its challenges but the vision is the same-to finish a beautiful product to share with others.
