Autumn Harvest Ojibwe Wild Rice
Autmun Harvest Wild Rice is a local, small-scale producer operated by members of the Ojibwe Nation. Their wild rice is hand-harvested and then processed in Sawyer, MN at Bruce Savage’s Wild Rice finishing plant. Traditional wild rice is dramatically different than paddy-grown “cultivated” wild rice offering a true taste of Minnesota. Find Autumn Harvest Ojibwe Wild Rice at both Franklin and Friendship stores.
