Red Rice: Heirloom Variety
This native rice is something special – a rice variety with a story.
As an heirloom variety, this rice has been passed on from one generation to the next. Farmers make it a point to save seeds for future planting or for sharing with their fellow farmers. Here in the Philippines, this variety is cultivated in the healthy, fertile soils of the mountainous regions of Negros Island.
This variety is grown by small farmers committed to good health, quality foods, ethical fair trade and eco-friendly sustainable farming practices.
