“Only Goose Valley Wild Rice™ comes from just one location - Goose Valley with hand selected plump Grade A wild rice for our Family Reserve. This 'jumbo' Goose Valley wild rice is selected for its extremely large size and fully matured kernels. This is the largest wild rice grown in California.
We started with a few acres, but demand caused us to expand production until we became the largest grower of certified organic and natural wild rice in America.”
Family-owned Goose Valley Ranch™, is nestled high in the Cascade Mountains, south of Mt. Shasta. Goose Valley is still a wild place shared with geese and ducks, eagles and hawks, elk and deer, coyote, mountain lion, and bear. Since the 1980s the wildlife has grown along with our wild rice production
Goose Valley’s red volcanic soil helps give Goose Valley Wild Rice its nutty flavor. Most agree that the pure water from spring snow melt is also critical. The summer’s hot days and chilly nights, and the winter’s freezing snow are ideal for growing wild rice.
