Our friend and a Heritage Foods USA Advisory Board member Winona
La Duke is who introduced us to the delicious products of the
Northern Minnesota Lake regions. While we have carried many
products from this group it is their wild rice that is by far the
most popular. This is one of the few rice varieties that is truly
wild. Winona is working to protect the wild label for producers
that truly raise the grain on open lakes.
