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.

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.
