Lundberg Family Farms
Lundberg Family Farms® is a mission-driven company that holds itself to a high standard in business, environmental stewardship, and the relationships it has with employees and business partners.
Lundberg Family Farms recognizes the importance of a natural environment, purity of the foods we eat and sustainability in agriculture. We recognize the consumer’s interest in knowing how their food was produced and what ingredients are present. Lundberg Family Farms’ goal is to be able to market its rice in all countries worldwide in accordance with those countries’ GMO acceptance levels. We will promote a non-GMO philosophy as a way of doing business.
Nurturing the soil is a high priority for Lundberg Family Farms. Many farmers consider the soil to be merely an anchor for the plant’s roots, and treat it as a sterile medium in which they control rice plants, weeds, insects and diseases with various agrichemicals and may include burning rice straw. The Lundbergs view the soil as a living organism rotating in cover crops, periodically leaving fields fallow, and encouraging waterfowl to rest on our fields in the winter to help break down the rice stubble and provide needed fertility to our fields.

Because of these properties, Short Grain Brown rice is especially suitable in recipes where a creamy texture is desired, such as puddings, rice balls, croquettes, paella, and risotto.
