As an American farmer, we grow and source rice from local and regional farmers, producing the best rice possible. Rice is not just rice, doing the rice thing right is part of my family’s legacy - starting with my father W. Elton Kennedy’s first rice crop in 1969! Today, our family, tenants, and employees directly farm over 25,000 acres of rice. What our family understands is that great rice is grown not only for yield but grown for taste. We utilize only the highest quality of standards throughout the entire rice production process from farm to table. This begins with planting only selected premium rice varieties and ends by utilizing the most advanced precision milling process in the Rice Industry. This is why we say that Kennedy Rice is “Grown for Taste”.  We taste the difference and know you will too!
