Fun Fact

Wild rice is an ancient grain and has been found in layers of the earth dating back some 12,000 years.

Treat a friend to the incomparable taste of true wild rice. Tribal members of the Ojibwe Reservation in Minnesota will hand-harvest natural, uncultivated wild rice for you. Using long forked poles, the harvesters bend the rice stalks into the canoes, where the “knockers” beat the ripe rice kernels off the stalk.

New!  FREE Action Photo included with one of the progress reports.

Additional Information

True Wild Rice is actually a variety of grass, and very different in look and in taste from the black cultivated “wild rice” mixtures usually sold in stores. Pure, natural, uncultivated wild rice is tan in color, cooks in half the time of paddy-raised “wild rice”, and has an incomparable nutty flavor. Tribal members of the Ojibwe Lake Reservation Tribal Council will hand-harvest this uncultivated wild rice for you. Using long forked poles, the harvesters bend the rice stalks into the canoes, where the “knockers” beat the ripe rice kernels off the stalk. The rice kernels that fall into the water now become the seed for next year’s harvest.

  • The Lease Document is calligraphed with your recipient’s name, and comes with an Announcement Card explaining the program. Periodic Progress Reports provide facts, anecdotes and folklore about the lake.
  • We do all the work and you get all the raves (while helping support America’s family farms).

    This wild rice lease is the most unique gift I have ever been able to send anyone – and was recognized as such by my friends and relatives. There’s a fascinating story behind this rice – and you can’t get it anywhere else. Great gift for foodies who have everything! And a chance to give back in a small way to the original people of our country. Last year I sent a Rent Mother Nature lease to everyone on my holiday list and every single one of them reported how much they enjoyed the produce.

  2. Max Boudin

    Wild rice was a real taste treat. Your recipe suggestions were very helpful.

  3. Sam Miller

    Everything was wonderful! We got many thanks from our friends, but you deserve the credit.

    Please never drop the wild rice lease.  I can’t find that rice anywhere.  It’s been the mainstay of my Monday nite comfort food for a number of years  Thanks again.
