Wild Rice

More Information:

  • Slow Food USA
  • Map of Growers
  • Find Growers by State:

This tall, aquatic grass has long blades that grow best in the shallow waters of the Great Lakes region of the US (Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, Ohio). Wild rice is the only grain native to North America and comes in a myriad of colors in the darker hues - green, tan, brown. The Anishinaabeg Indians, who traditionally harvest the grass from canoes, call it Manoomin ("the good grain"). The beauty of manoomin is its easy cultivation, as the rice grows naturally, with no need to be planted or tended, and provides a bountiful harvest that can be stored through the winter.
