The wild rice we sell is 100% naturally grown unless it is labled 'Cultivated'. Neither is certified 'organic wild rice' in accordance with the USDA regulations.
We are often asked what’s the difference between organic wild rice and cultivated wild rice.
"Real" or what many people call "organic wild rice" grows wild in the clear lakes of northern Minnesota and Canada. It is not genetically modified and has not been altered like some of the cultivated paddy wild rice that is available in grocery stores across the country.
The history of wild rice is an interesting one. It is an aquatic cereal grain that grows wild in isolated lakes and river bed areas located primarily within the continent of North America. This evolutionarily ancient grain has been found in layers of the earth dating back some 12,000 years. In addition to its role as an important food staple for ancestral peoples, it has provided a unique habitat for fish and waterfowl for thousands of years. The methods used for harvesting wild rice have remained unchanged for centuries. Wild Rice also has many uses, as a grain, as a folk medicine, in ornamental use and in cultural events.

What our Customers say about Moose Lake Wild Rice
This the best wild rice ever! Thanks a lot for an excellent product!
Moose Lake Wild Rice is the only company that I know of that has true wild rice. It is not a cultivar. Wild rice is beneficial to one's health and it's delicious to boot! You can't beat that! White rice has no health benefits at all, and that supposed brown rice that you see in health food stores is also a cultivar and not true wild rice. Neither of these rices taste near as good as the true wild rice from MLWR. Also you might have heard of cultivated wild rice, but that is not true wild rice. If it is cultivated, it is a cultivar and thus not true wild rice. So be sure to help MLWR stay in business by getting their delicious true wild rice.
I received the rice today and prepared it for dinner. First, the color is lighter than the wild rice we've eaten over the years. But here is where it's different - the taste. It cooked up fluffy and tastes so good. I'm glad I bought 5 pounds. Wow, so we're eating "Real" wild rice now and it is fantastic.
I recíd ordered 5 lbs of your rice and made a batch last night for supper. Iím so glad I found you guys. I love cooking with natural foods and wild game. Your rice is the best! Canít wait to share with all my friends.
Wow!!! I've already received my order. Love the packaging and the burlap bags. Rice looks fantastic and looking forward to having it and serving some during the Christmas holidays; plus one will be a gift. Thank you so much. Your customer service is everything you promised and more!!!!!!!
Just wanted to say thank you for the prompt service and great product. I received my wild rice shipment yesterday and there will be a lot of happy people when they learn that I am going to share. I'll send people your way for mail order when they ask where they can get more.
Best regards, L.F.
Thank you so much for the terrific customer service regarding my order. Your help is greatly appreciated - and so is the wild rice! We just talked to you and placed the order yesterday, received it today, and already have a pot of it cooking for supper.
Thank you, thank you, thank you! D.P.
Got the rice, it's great. Very prompt delivery. Brown, red grains,
interesting colors, medium length. Boiled it for 20 minutes, off heat for
40. Fleshy firm curled grains, not mushy. Enjoyed by all. Forget whether
we had a 4 or 3 to one water to rice ratio.
Youíre rice is wonderful!!!!!! We were kind of afraid to cook it up due to our last experience with the cultivated ďwildĒ rice...but damn...this stuff is good...just like the rice we got from those folks that harvested it themselves. Iíll be spreading the word. Take care and thanks!
This past weekend I fed 130 people. I have never prepared wild rice in my life. I followed your simple instructions and the rice came out perfectly. I was feeding some of the most picky people ever, the matriarchs of our church conference and they loved the meal. I served the rice with braised chicken, mushroom gravy, green beans, salad and roll. I saw some of the very most picky eaters all but lick their plates. Needless to say I will use this product again. Thanks for making me a hero!!
My brother and his wife have been sending me your wild rice for years. It IS the very best.
Thanks. It was great and I think it is a unique product. I suggest you
I ordered some of the Canadian rice from another vendor and it is OK but
we like the rice I got from you more. Will order 10 pounds later today.
You have the best wild rice I've ever tasted or cooked (20 min. is perfect) Thanks
for a great product at a great price. I've passed your company name on to many friends.
There will be no need for your 100% satisfaction guarantee...made my first batch of
your wild rice and truly enjoyed it. Everyone that we gave a lb. to seemed pleased and
eager to try the real stuff. I can't imagine any of them would take advantage of your
Merry Christmas to you and yours!
The rice arrived and itís perfect! Didnít count as yet, but I love the wrap Ė
Thanks again very much &
Lee and I won a basket of wild rice, pancake mix and syrup at the Ducks Unlimited Banquet
a couple of weeks ago and we thank you for such a nice gift you gave to DU.
It is always a great banquet.
L. and MJ J.
I was impressed with my order...love the labeling...rice looks wonderful....love the burlap bags.
I will remember you for future orders
My order arrived yesterday and I just want to let you know how pleased I am with it! I grew up in Minnesota and
am moving back after more than 25 years. I wanted to give a gift to some of my Arizona friends that was from Minnesota
and I thought of wild rice. I found you on-line and I'm very happy with my choice. The bags are a nice extra touch
and I love the recipe book. The price was good and the service was great! I'm sure I will be ordering more.
The order arrived and tonight's the night. Thanks so for the prompt and efficient service.
Thank you for your response and offer to ship by US Mail. I will keep that
in mind when I order again. I have ordered twice now and so far I am very
satisfied with your product and speedy processing of my orders.
Keep up the good work it IS appreciated.
The rice sold by Moose Lake is some of the finest wild rice I have ever had. It cooks in much less time than
cultivated rice and the smell that envelops your home when you bake it is to die for! The price is incredible for
the quality of the product.
I tried your pancake mix for the 1st time.................pure heaven. Loved
the taste. And the syrup was just as good!
I love the rice! I will call you later or go online to order more!
It looks fantastic - the grains are huge! I really like your label also.
Got it. Thank you, so much. You truly are doing all of your customers
a divine service. That rice is so amazing. I've cooked for people who
are totally convince that they don't like wild rice...they have no clue.
I received the rice package on Wednesday and tried out some of the wild rice immediately based on your
cooking instructions. My wife is extremely happy with the rich flavor and earthy taste of this rice. We
have been eating store bought wild rice mixes and this was a whole new flavor and aroma!! Waiting to try
out some of your recipes from the booklet!
I received my order of wild rice yesterday and had a bowl for breakfast this morning. Thank you so much
for the prompt delivery and the superior product. This is a hundred times better than the hard, black
cultivated stuff and cooks in half the time. I'll definitely order from you the next time I run out.
Thank you for taking the time to reply to my inquiry so rapidly. I really look forward to receiving your
Catalog and making my purchase and receiving my order. It's not every company who has such good PR as yours,
Thank you for the great quality wild rice. It is just the same as I used to eat growing up near Leech
Lake. I grew up in Walker, MN, and we had a hunting cabin on Boy Bay (Blackduck Point) on Leech Lake. The
basic recipe I usually use is cooking the rice with fresh mushrooms, celery and onion with chicken broth.
I bought wild rice for Thanksgiving- it was so delicious! When I was a child growing up in South Dakota,
we had wild rice from Minnesota. And for many years, a friend gave me rice from Minnesota. But for the last
few years, I bought wild rice in the store here in Illinois and cooked it. I was so disappointed! It did not
look or taste like wild rice. Then I got the idea to go online and buy rice. I learned that the rice in the
store is not real wild rice! I am so glad I found you! I have a few bags left and can't wait to use them!
We just got the package! Thank you for the fast fast transaction. We will definitely be back as customers! Thanks again.
Just a quick note to let you know my order, Fishing Fever Batter, Pancake Mix and the Natural Wild Rice
arrived as promised, well packaged and without delay. This was the first of what will no doubt be many
pleasant experiences with your product and your service. As far as the product goes, I am excited about
trying both the Rice and the Batter but wanted you to know I got up early this morning (Saturday) and started
the day off with a batch of muffins made with Terri's Pancake Mix. Added a cup of dried Blueberries just for
kicks and did a pan of thick sliced bacon to round out what turned out to be some of the best muffins I've
ever eaten. My wife apparently agreed as she was very quietly consuming muffin's and bacon while she read
two newspapers and never said a word. Made for a great start to the weekend. Thanks.
This is a first time order for us. We have received it as a Christmas gift and enjoy it so much we had to have more.
Just a note to tell you how great it was to open the box of wild rice..being a native of
Minnesota, the musty scent of the rice brought back memories of watching a harvest when I was
a kid and the comfort of it cooking on the stove as my Mother dressed and made ready to stuff
the pheasants from the corn field my Father brought in ... thank you! may you stay in business forever..
We recently received an order of five pounds of wild rice. I just wanted to make a few comments. Your
web site and business is very well set up and is very professional. Our order was handled promptly, and we
really like the true "wild" rice.
My wife and I are originally from northern Wisconsin. We also lived in White Bear Lake and Ely, Minnesota.
Our wild rice supply, which was harvested by my brother, has nearly run out. So I got on the internet and
found your site--my new source for wild rice.
Wow, Terri and Charlie, Thanks for this delicious rice! My husband just loves it and eats it every day.
Your service was incredible, notifying us of processing, etc., and we received the product so quickly I was amazed.
I am writing to let you know I really like your wild rice.
I was used to some larger-grain wild rice from the nearby huge natural food chain store, probably cultivated, that seemed to take a long time to cook and ended up real chewy. This rice you sent cooks quickly, and has a delicately sweet earthy taste and crisp, tender texture. I had ordered 100 lbs, 50 lbs bulk and 50 lbs packaged.
I will be giving some 1 lb. bags as gifts this Christmas and they are very handy in the kitchen. I just busted into the bulk bag today and that's just as good.
Thanks so much, you had asked me to let you know how I liked it, especially since I was being so picky and asking a lot of questions. Well, I am satisfied now!
A friend of mine gave me a bag of Moose Lake Wild Rice some time ago. And I would like to know how to go about ordering some. I cut off the info on the bag plus the small white tag and took a picture so I could make sure I get the same kind. It was the kind that looked like tiny straw and a mix of something with it. When it is cooked it has white semi-circle in it. To describe the taste.well, it is heavenly. Very earthy and delicious!
Having been used to eating the little black wild rice from the groc store.there is no comparison. The Moose Lake Wild Rice is THE BEST. I want to order but I want to make sure that I order exactly when I am sending a picture of. I know there are different types of wild rice. But I am interested in the kind my friend gave to me.
I am interested in ordering 5 lbs of the 1 lb bags.
I need your help in ordering exactly the same kind.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
My order for ten (10) pounds of your wild rice arrived safely and in excellent condition this morning. I'm sure it will give us many meals of delightful eating. Your rice is probably the finest on the market. Thank you for your services.
We enjoyed our last order so much, we're doubling it this time..!!
I recently ordered 2 pounds of wild rice and just wanted to say "thank you" for the wonderful product. I cooked up a whole bag of the rice and put it in the freezer to use when I need it. It turned out perfectly and tasted delicious. I will definitely order from you again!
Just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed your wild rice.
Thank you so much
You have a great product!
I have been buying from you for years.
Please give my thanks to Charlie for checking on the miniature canoe and for identifying the problem with my first order attempt. I succeeded with the order today, thanks to your personal help.
Thank heavens for small family-run internet stores.
Thank you for your speedy service. My folks love wild rice.
