Our most versatile rice, Andy’s Santee Gold Rice is a firm-textured, long-grain, non aromatic rice making it the perfect complement to recipes that call for a simple neutral flavor.  This rice is nearly identical in taste, cooking and culinary quality as Carolina Gold, just with a longer grain and it is a modern nod to the historic and gold medal winning Carolina Long Gold.  Delicious simply boiled or steamed, the rice is also a secret ingredient for elevating your favorite recipes.   

Our Process: 
Unlike modern rice that is often grown in sandy clay and harvested from multiple growers, we grow our rice in our own peaty fields that are mineral and nutrient rich.  We’re close enough to the ocean to flood our fields by tides, but far enough inland to receive natural freshwater river irrigation, which makes for delicious rice and a more sustainable farming method.  We also use traditional rotational crop methods as part of our land stewardship program.  After the harvest, the rice is dried and kept in its husk to maintain freshness. As needed, it is cleaned and milled in small batches. It is minimally processed and polished to ensure no flavor is lost. The bags are heat sealed to further preserve freshness. 

Each bag is 24 ounces.
