Something we love about farming at Cahokia Rice is that every year is different. This spring, we are watching the thermometer closely. Not the one outside measuring the air temperature - the one underneath the ground. What we are monitoring right now...
Like most rice farmers, we do eat rice, but not every day. While its naturally high protein content is an obvious dietary benefit of Cahokia Rice, some researchers believe that protein content has the potential to affect how a rice tastes.
That question was posed to me last summer at a food convention by an experienced rice importer. He had an impressive business bringing red, black, and Forbidden rice to the United States - however, he couldn't see the point of offering a rice naturally higher in protein, like Cahokia.
We at Cahokia Rice invite you to join us as the coming year of rice production on our farm unfolds.
