This long grain Red Rice retains its entire bran layer where all of the grain’s nutrients are stored. It cooks in only 30 minutes, producing a slightly nutty flavor and a toothsome yet tender grain. Our Organic Red Rice is sourced from the Koloharena Cooperative in Madagascar using SRI farming practices (what we call More Crop Per Drop™). This enables smallholder farmers to harvest more rice using less water and pesticides while reducing methane off-gassing and physical labor for women. The Koloharena Cooperative is located on Lake Alaotra's, which is home to the critically endangered Alaotran Gentle Lemur. It is hoped that SRI farming practices will help reduce degradation of the lemur's dwindling habitat by making existing land more productive without the need for polluting chemicals. Visit our MCPD page to learn more about this amazing system that is changing how rice is being grown around the world.
