Canadian Organic Wild Rice — naturally grown and wild harvested in Canada's pristine northern lakes.

  • A premium quality wild rice with a jumbo grain that is 1/2 to 3/4 of an inch or more in length.
  • Wild rice, an aquatic grass seed, is high in protein when compared to other white rices and grains.
  • Not genetically engineered.
  • Certified Kosher by Blue Ribbon Kosher. See the North Bay Kosher List.
  • Click on our photo slides for more insight on this wild rice.
  • Harvesting Info: We ensure perfection in flavor, preservation of nutrition, and prevention of molding. We do not harvest early, as this results in a collection of immature, pale wild rice. We preserve the nutritious black outer hull. (Some processors remove the black hull to obtain a shorter cook time.) Also, we dry the rice properly, which prevents the moldy aroma sometimes found with other wild rice.

Organic wild rice certification: Certified organic by MCIA organic wild rice

Common wild rice uses: Makes a great side dish as well as a base for entrees and salads. Also often used as a major ingredient in soups, stews, and casseroles.

Packaging: Bagged selections are in resealable poly bags. Bulk box orders use sealed plastic bag inside sturdy cardboard box.

Allergen Information: Processed in a facility that also handles cereal grains, peanuts, tree nuts, and soybeans.

A popular gift item: Use our multiple-address and gifts-messaging features to send our organic Canadian wild rice to friends and family.

Best Wild Rice Ever review by Stanette

Order this Canadian Organic Wild Rice. It is a fabulous product. Did you know that wild rice is not really a rice? It is the seed of an aquatic grass like rice and grows naturally. It is healthy and easy to digest. We are whole food plant based and we throw it in an instant pot on the rice setting and once done add vegetables and steam them in the same pot. Yum. You have to try it. Or in a regular pot. Add it to your food options. You will not be disappointed.

Excellent quality! review by Lemony

Glossy, beautiful long grains. I ordered from Florida. Was warned that the holiday season and/or pandemic might slow things down. It was here in 3 days! Which was great, as I had foolishly let myself run out.

THIS IS THE PRODUCT review by Junior

As a Minnesota native transplanted to Florida I used to bring home several pounds of wild rice everytime I visited home. Years ago I stumbled upon North Bay and the Canadian grain ..WOW.. I now order in 10 lb. increments.. Amazing the difference. This is our to go to grain

We buy this wild rice in the 10 lb bag and repackage it in zip lock bags to give to friends and family at Christmas. And of course, save enough for ourselves.

Canadian Wild Rice - What a surprise! review by Skytrooper

We have never eaten not relished the tast of wild rice, but have ordered many times from North Bay Traders, so we order a couple of the 5 lb bags. We followed cooking directions, but did rinse well, boil for ten minutes, emptied and stained, adding fresh water and continued cooking. Then added it to soup and loved it. Then tried it with just butter and salt, and loved the flavor and texture. It has great nutritional value and is has a long shelf life.

delicious, wonderful texture, versatile review by heavenly

This wild rice is absolutely the best we've ever had. The grains are long, with great texture. I've added miso to a wild rice salad and the umami is amazing. It was recommended to us by a friend who said "this is the only vendor you should ever buy wild rice from, it is absolutely the best". We buy the 5 pound bag so we always have a lot on hand.

Manna from Canada review by Hardy

Since the day I discovered your Organic Wild Rice, I have eaten it most mornings. My french Grandmother from Provence via Quebec prepared wild rice often in a plethora of dishes. We lived in Texas, where few people knew what wild rice is. Thank you Grandmere Jeanne. Anyway, Thank you all for providing this wonderful product for us in 2020.

Best Rice Ever! review by Foxy

Great Canadian Wild Rice as well as delivery! review by Sue

My husband and I have been ordering the Canadian Wild rice from NorthBay Trading for a number of years! The rice is so long, so easy to cook with NorthBay's directions. And delivered so well! Our favorite ways to serve this rice are as a side dish, but also in a Wild rice soup, or casserole. We need this rice to make it through the Wild, windy, cold Montana winters!

Excellent Quality review by Merrill

As a transplated Canadian in Florida, this rice's quality is as good as what I used to buy from my friend in Manitoba. I will continue to be a customer as wild rice has been a staple in my family since I was very young.

My Favorite and only source for wild rice review by Judy T.

When I need wild rice, I always get it from North Bay Trading. It is my only source for excellent wild rice, which I use both alone and in my own mixture with brown and white rice. Its quality is always superb. Think Canadian waterways.

Great! review by Ginny

We have been eating wild rice for years and have purchased from many companies. Yours is one that we now order from exclusively. The grains are long and cook well and the taste is excellent. We rarely cook "regular rice" but substitute the wild rice in all our recipes. It was a special treat to see your video of harvesting and processing the wild rice.

Love this Canadian Wild Rice! review by Texas Implant

As a Mn native who enjoys wild rice, I just love this Canadian rice. I ordered my homeland favorite and this well-reviewed Canadian version the first time ordering. I was surprised how very different the two types are. This one has a more gourmet grain essence - flavor and texture - than its Mn cousin. And I say that after enjoying Mn wild rice greatly at two different B&Bs in Mn and Wi in the past few years.

In the past I've found this rice freezes well. Unfortunately, I cooked a batch just perfectly and then froze for a couple weeks, and found it a bit soggy this time. I think the difference is that in the past I slightly undercooked before freezing. I will be testing out that theory. Or just making it fresh, because it's far too good to waste.

A Taste of the Wild review by JustaClickAway

I’ve ordered this wild rice several times for my family and also given it as a gift to friends and family. It really is the best wild rice I’ve ever had. The grains are longer than any other’s that I’ve found which makes it look very unique on a plate. The taste and texture are really special. You can taste the wilderness in each bite. This goes great with salmon! We’ve cooked it in a pot and also in a rice cooker.

Best wild rice anywhere review by IAHAWK

We have ordered this wild rice from you several times. It is our favorite!!
My daughter actually had wonderful luck making it at Thanksgiving for our turkey dressing in an Instapot. It was perfect. She used 1:1 ratio 28 min high pressure with quick release.
We will be having wild rice with our Christmas meal of prime rib.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Yum!! review by wsm

I live in Iowa. Quality wild rice is almost non-existent and what there is barely passes. The Canadian long rice mixed in with some sauteed mushrooms and small pheasant strips is delicious. Another way to cook game that's irresistible and even very healthy. (any meat protein works well too of course)

There is no shortage of wild rice in the market place but none compare to this wild rice which is simply the best I have ever had. The length of the grain is superior to any other I have seen. The taste is fantastic. Do not look any further when buying wild rice!!

Quality Products review by Vince

Just ordered another batch of wild rice - - both Canadian and Minnesotan. Past batches have been high quality in appearance and taste. A portion of this batch will be used as Christmas stocking stuffers for my adult children and as presents for neighbors. And, have ordered a box set of soup mixes for the first time, and expect it to be the same high quality as the rice.

Exceptional wild rice! review by Alex

I have eaten many types of wild rice (who knew there were so many?), and this is hands-down the best. I have fed it to many, and sent samples to many, and the vote is unanimous, this is the best! Large, chewy and delicious. Never fails to wow.

Exceptional quality - again!! review by Koffee Kup

In spite of weather challenges, the crop came in with the high quality I have come to enjoy. Even tho' Canadian Wild Rice grains are extra long they came intact, not broken, which speaks to the care in harvest,cleaning and packaging. I love adding it to a dish I cook using a beef hanging tender, Butcher's cut, along with brown rice and roasted corn kernels all seasoned with Montreal Steak Rub. Never any leftovers.

AWESOME, delicious & healthy review by Cher

I just made another purchase of WILD RICE, this time in the 20lb bag! It is my first time buying this quantity, but I took advantage of your 10% OFF SALE. After being without the 'gourmet' Organic for SEVERAL months, I didn't want to be without it again! It's flavor and texture is definitely superior! I really enjoyed the video & I would enjoy hearing about the recipes they use it in. Also, possibly the health benefits. Just a thought. I believe people are still learning about this delicious & healthy product.

Go WILD.. review by junior

Growing up in Minnesota wild rice was always on our holiday table. Relocated to Florida 30 yrs. ago, whenever, I would visit Minnesota I would bring back several lbs. After finding this product many yrs. back this is my to go to. 5 lb. bag goes a long way. It is considered a "super food" and used in our home in many applications. These long grains are the bomb..Thank you for this product

Great Wild Rice and Greater Family business review by Cao

I received my order today. It's the 1st time I bought wild rice due to health issues. After much shopping in stores and online, I landed with North Bay Trading Co, a great, reliable company. Very fast shipping and they make sure that someone is home to sign. I appreciate that very much as we have thieves stealing packages. I cooked two cups in my automatic rice cooker following rice/water proportion on my rice cooker. It takes 80 minutes (in this cooker it takes 58 minutes to cook white rice) It comes out good, soft and chewy, just the way I want. I bought 50LB. When it's finished, I'll definitely order again and again and again!!! Thanks so very much!

Excellent product review by Kathy

For years my father ordered the family long grain wild rice from one of the fishing and hunting magazines. I continued that tradition when I had a family of my own. After YEARS of trying to rep, I ate the rice, I found it at north fact, the gentleman told me they used to provide the rice for that magazine. I felt like I found my long lost friend...the organic Canadian long grain is awesome...a dream to cook with and even better to eat! I highly recommend this product!!!

Works for me! review by butch w

Thanks for the info it was very helpful and my system worked for softening, I used a ceramic (large) cup and put about 1/2 cup of rice and 8 oz of water, for 3 min. in a microwave, let it cool and then left it in the fridge for a day or so, put 1 cup of Basmanti rice, a little olive oil, and 10 1/2 oz can of lo sodium chicken broth with the wild rice and water from the ceramic cup.

It works out perfect, and the smell in my kitchen was wonderful (sort of nutty).

Again thank you.

The Perfect Food review by Perfect

I eat allot of wild rice. I consider it one of Nature's most perfect and nutritious foods. I was given 5 lbs of this rice as a gift and am very pleased with the quality. It cooks up delicious and nutty, crunchy or soft depending on how long I cook it. Either way, its the best I've ever had. I'll most certainly be back for more.

Canadian wild and long-grain rice recipe review by Kamryn

Here is a recipe we made using the Canadian wild rice. It makes about 10-12 servings. We make a batch, divide it into single servings, package it and freeze it. My guys grab one as a side for their lunches at work.
* 1 cup uncooked Canadian wild rice - cook in about 3 cups water until done, about 45 minutes (see instructions on package).
* 2 cups uncooked long grain brown rice (cook following your package instructions).
* About 1/2 cup each of preferred add-ins - sautéed chopped onion, sautéed chopped mushrooms, chopped dried cranberries, almond slivers or slices or walnuts, etc.
* 1/4 tsp fine sea salt, 1/4 tsp garlic powder, 1 tsp dried parsley flakes
Mix cooked Canadian wild rice, brown rice, add-in ingredients and spices together in large bowl. Cool in refrigerator before packaging but don't let it sit out on counter top. When cooled, divide into desired serving sizes, package in baggies or vacuum-seal, then label and freeze.

I love the wild rice review by Vicki

I love this rice. I cook it in lots of “better than bouillon’ broth with sautéed onions. Then add a nut of some kind upon serving. I like it fully cooked and it is just as delicious as a salad with a dressing such as a little olive oil and Seasoned Rice Vinegar. YUM!

I can't wait to taste the wild rice. I was introduced this rice by a Buddhist monk and it is so delicious. He cooks in the regular rice cooker with red bean.

Every so often one comes across a product that is head and shoulders above everything else in it's class; your Canadian Organic Wild Rice is one such product.

Wild Rice Duo review by CJ

We have found out the Canadian Wild rice has more flavor than the Minnesota, but is harder on the jaws. For the past couple years I cook 1-1/2 cups of each, this gives us the great flavor we enjoy so much. This gives us rice for the freezer to save time. We put some in all our soups, when we re-heat spaghetti, you name it and we will try to add some of our favorite wild rice mixture.

I purchased a 20-pound box of Canadian Wild Rice, and am extremely pleased with the high quality of the rice. Very long grained rice, with excellent flavor. I add Shitake mushrooms and some dried cranberries. First-rate product.

Back for More review by Dennis

Once you try this rice you'll be back for more. Yes, it's expensive. But most folks only eat wild rice on special occasions and why serve your family and friends an inferior product? As a native Minnesotan, I have eaten w/r for decades. The organic long grain natural harvested Canadian rice sold by North Bay Trading is simply the best I have found, anywhere.

WOW!! review by Maggie

I am now a lifetime fan of this wild rice. It is more flavorful and substantial than the little, expensive jars that the supermarket sells. I have ordered some as gifts to relatives and friends, who are anxious to try it since hearing me rave about it. I love it hot, with butter, but have added it to soups, made a cold vinagrette salad with cashews, and created a hot lobster/mushroom/rice dish, and I look foreward to discovering new ways to enjoy this wild rice!!

Absolutely the Best review by KJ

We have been ordering North Bay's Canadian Organic Wild Rice for years now. The quality and taste are always out of this world. The grains arrive whole and scrupulously clean. The rice gets an A+ for satisfaction - a sign that it is nutritionally dense. We pack it for long-term storage and rotate it through our emergency food supply, and the older rice is just as satisfying as the new - a sign that the nutritional values are maintained. Five stars all the way.

Best products and best service review by Montrose

Absolutely wonderful, top-quality, delicious rice. Having never cooked wild rice, I overcooked the first time or two, but it was still good. Wild rice and mushroom soup is heavenly. North Bay is a delightful company to do business with, great service with a personal touch.

I've been making wild rice dressing for our Thanksgiving turkey for many years. Having discovered your Canadian Organic Wild Rice last year, this will be, without question, my choice every time from now onward. Thanks!

Great Stuff review by Michael'n'Amy

Years ago we received wild rice from catalogue merchant Orvis and thought it the best ever. When they stopped offering it, we felt we had been spoiled for wild rice forever. Then we found North Bay and rediscovered Orvis' own secret source! The identical perfect and perfectly beautiful nutty trove! On our second 10-lb order now, and never less than a perfect meal. Five-star every time.

put in casserole review by DH

I use this wild rice in a casserole with onion, celery, mushrooms, beef stock, Lea & Perrins and Pick-a-Peppa sauce, along with two sticks of butter. Have served this dish for years.

The best! review by Lynner

I have been buying wild rice for far more yrs than I care to share--and THIS is the very best! I have been ordering this for several years now. Also use wild rice as gifts---a great hostess gift. Tired of giving wine!

Fantastic Product review by Nick Wispelwey

North Bay's Wild Rice is fantastic. I first tried it on a trip to Quetico and had to bring more home to my wife. She is hooked. As a vegetarian, she is always looking for wholesome grains and variety in her diet. This one is a winner at a great price.

Best wild rice I've ever had review by flyegirl

This wild rice is both part of my emergency food supply and my regular pantry. My favorite way to use it is to add it into a an organic wild rice pilaf I already buy in bulk. It dramatically extends the pilaf, making it much more filling, satisfying, economical, while raising the quality of my meals. Recently I started adding a couple of scoops of the pilaf to my lunch salads, making them so much more filling and savory, especially with my creamy yogurt dressing. So good! Another favorite is to slice slivers of steak onto the pilaf, sprinkle with gorgonzola cheese, and drizzle with sherry or balsamic vinegar. It's a blessing to be able to eat food of this quality.

There IS a Difference! review by David

I am making a concerted effort to purchase and prepare organic foods. Yes, there is a price difference -- and it is justified. The Canadian Organic Wild Rice is excellent -- as a recipe component or simply on its own. Texture and taste are far superior to varieties commonly available in retail outlets. A common remark made by people enjoying this wild rice for the first time is "I never knew wild rice tasted this good!".

On my second 5lb bag review by RLC

I just happened to find North Bay Trading Co. during an internet search for wild rice. Thank you for providing me with the highest quality wild rice on the market. I'm hooked, been using it with every meal. As my cardiologist requested. As a side dish I love it with white truffle oil and a dash of chipoltle sauce. I'll call when I need more!! Thanks, Bob

Salads review by Stan

Very Happy with the Canadian Organic Wild Rice. I cook up a large batch, freeze small portions, bring them out - thaw them and add them to our nightly salad. The rice adds flavor, texture and excellent nutrition. A very good unadulterated food. We feel very well served by The North Bay Trading Co. Good product; good people to do business with.

great with chicken review by Ken

We prepare this wild rice with slivered Almonds, craisins, and mushrooms and bake (with chicken bullion) as the liquid, for an hour and a half, and serve with large chicken breasts (airline breasts). Also, a variation is to put
the chicken on top of the rice for the last 45 min to hr. Thanks for all your wonderful products!

excellent product review by George

I just finished a 10 pound bag. I used to buy wild rice in northern Canada and was amazed by the quality of the rice from North Bay which is just as superior! I tried one previous internet site sometime ago and the wild rice was clearly inferior, small and dusty. The secret to a successful business is simple. Sell a superior product at a reasonable price. Well done!

Ordering again soon review by Sherry

I am so happy with my wild rice, the shipping methods, packaging, prices, and the receipt in an envelope, that just dooes not happen with other companies. For all this thank you!! We will be ordering again and send all these good things to our family and friends.

fantastic wild rice review by Pepperqueen

This is the best wild rice we have found in a very long time. Not only is the product superior, so is the service. One day after I ordered, I received an email with a Fedex tracking number, and received my order 5 or 6 days later. The last wild rice we ordered was not as good and a lot more expensive. We order 5 lbs. or more at least once a year and will definitely reorder from North Bay Trading.

The package instructions say that 1 1/2 cups of wild rice makes 4 generous servings (Ican't imagine the size of the servings). For us 1/2 cup rice makes at least 4 generous servings. Be careful to not overcook--I did and it was still wonderful.

Great review by Eli

Let me first say that I know a lot about wild rice. I chided my wife soon after we were married when she came home from the supermarket one day with "cultivated" wild rice. I refuse to eat the stuff, it's like eating wood. I will only eat wild rice harvested from lakes. I haven't ordered the Canadian Organic off the internet but they do carry it at the local supermarket, albeit only in 1lb packages. I probably go through 3 lbs a month.

One of the other reviews stated that "not all wild rice is created equal", did you know that this is absolutely true? No two bodies of water produce the same strain of wild rice. In Minnesota, where I live, there are over 10,000 known strains of wild rice, each one particular to the body of water it comes from. Some have long narrow grains that only grow in 2 - 4 ft of water. Others may be the same size but only grow in 5 - 6 feet of water. Yet others are short and fat, darker or lighter, etc, etc, etc. You get the idea. This is why it's almost impossible to "cultivate" wild rice. You can't just throw a bunch of seed in a rice patty and expect to get the same product.

Since different strains have various sizes and shapes it stands to reason that they all have slight differences in taste and texture as well. Honestly, Canadian Organic has found a good one. Quite possibly the best I've ever tried.

Expect a bulk order from me very soon.

If you're someone just reading reviews looking for some wild rice to buy, take notice that nobody here has given this product less than 5 stars....

Absolutely best wild rice ever review by GJA

I have cooked with wild rice for years, but have never had such a high quality product. The kernels are huge, with lots of bran - requires a longer cook time - but phenomenal flavour. I've been spoiled now and will never buy any other wild rice.....

These Guys Are the Best review by Dan

Have been doing business with these guys for 5 years at least. The Canadian Organic is the best we've ever found anywhere, their service and attention to taking care of their customers is uncommonly excellent. We buy lots of this for ourselves, buy this wild rice for gifts and everybody raves about it! For a real treat, try the 32 Bean 8 Veg Soup. Thanks to Greggar and all at North Bay Trading!

THE BEST WILD RICE EVER!! review by Rita

This is the best wild rice I have ever had and will purchase it forever from North Bay Trading Company because they are just so wonderful.

This is the best quality wild rice we have ever been able to purchase. review by Betty Missling

Our family so enjoys the wild rice from NorthBayTrading. The quality is outstanding compared to others in the marketplace. We use it in soups, salads, and our favorite is baked with fresh mushrooms.

Wonderful!! review by Thomas

This is the first time we've ever eaten organic wild rice and we will never go back to the "store brands". The recipes we made so far were the soup and the waffles. The flavor and texture are amazing! Thank you for the prompt delivery. We will be ordering again soon.

Flavorful organic wild rice special for cooking, gifts. review by Julia

The Canadian organic wild rice is the best, with its long, perfect grains and its wonderful flavor. It's perfect for dishes such as stroganoff and rice and mushroom casseroles. One cannot find wild rice of this quality in the local grocery store, so a one-pound package makes a great hostess gift for friends who like to cook.

Better than the rest review by Ron

First I would like to say I am new to wild rice. Because I am new I bought 2 lbs. from 3 different companies, You are one of them . I want you to know that your company put the other two to shame. First I was impressed with the packaging. The other two simply put the wild rice bags in a bubble envelope. Second was the presentation of your package(GREAT). Last was the wild rice it self. After seeing yours I feel the Other two companies ripped me off. One of the other companies wild rice was all over the inside of the bubble envelope because their package broke open. I will be buying from you only. Thanks for caring what the customer receives.

None better review by BV

I have eaten wild rice since the 50's & this Canadian Organic is simply the best. Actually, we like all Wild Rice but when we want the best, we know what to order and from whom. Your quality we can count on. We'll be back! Thanks

Excellent in soups, casseroles review by Pam

This Canadian Organic Wild Rice is deliciously fresh by itself, but makes a nutty, chewy addition to soup and casseroles. I like it with broth, Mrs. Dash, fresh sage, and sour cream for a rich soup.

The Best I Have Ever Found review by Cowboy Cuisine

I am extremely particular about wild rice, as I am about all gourmet foods. I want real "wild" rice and have found it at North Bay. I was buying it directly from the Ojibway Indians, but your quality and flavor is unequaled! I cook a lot of game dishes and serve almost all of them with your Organic Canadian Wild Rice. Again, it is the best I have found in 30 years of searching.

ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! review by Alice

I'm a wild rice addict. I grew up on wild rice, having my childhood in Minnesota. I'm 55 years old and I think I've had EVERY brand of wild rice to be found! I'm quite persnickety about my wild rice and have bought it in all manner of grocery stores, upscale markets, and Internet sources. This is IT. This is the BEST wild rice you'll find.

It has a great texture, a wonderful flavor - sometimes I cook it until it's almost soft, other times, I leave it just a little firm... almost crunchy. It's good with everything.

I always have some cooked and in the refrigerator ready to use/eat. I like to toss a handful in salad, soup, even mix it with penne. It's great with any protein - wilt some spinach, sprinkle this rice (cooked) on it, and top it with a nice piece of salmon. Yum!

We mix it with roasted vegetables, sprinkle it on mashed potatoes, and put it into our scrambled eggs. Pretty much anything that isn't dessert is better with this wild rice.

It is higher in protein and lower in simple carbohydrates than any other kind of rice - wild rice is the best nutrition in rice you'll ever find. And this wild rice - the organic Canadian is absolutely the BEST wild rice I've ever had.

You can mix it with other rice, but we find that we love this rice so much, it's all we want to eat! Also, it makes a SPLENDID gift - we make up little gift bags and North Bay Trading will give you little cards to include that give information about the rice and have cooking instructions. It's an exceptional gift - no matter whom you give it to, NO ONE will be giving them the same gift! It's a very unique gift that will be greatly appreciated.

We buy 20 pounds at a time. It keeps for a long time.

This rice has spoiled me. review by Karen

This is the most delicious wild I have ever eaten. The flavor is outstanding and grains are the longest I have ever found. I didn't realize quite how wonderful it is until I tasted other brands. It has been a favorite with my family for many years. Nothing else equals it, and It is well worth the price.

Abthowootly Fabulouth Rithe! <G> review by Mark Zimmerman

Canadian Organic Wild Rice

Easy to Prepare

  • Wash with cold water and then drain.
  • Bring 1 part wild rice and 3 parts water to a boil.
  • Then cover and strong simmer for about 45 minutes.
  • Drain or let the water steam off for the last few minutes of cooking.
  • Do not over cook. For the full flavor and chewy texture of this wild rice, stop cooking when the rice looks like an opened hot dog bun — not exploded like popcorn.
  • Serve piping hot, perhaps with butter, salt, and pepper.

Freezes well. Cooked wild rice may be frozen and then reheated.

Yield — Canadian lake wild rice expands 3-4 times when cooked. Use 1.5 cups (about 1/3 pound) of uncooked rice to make 4 generous portions.

Storage — Best if used within 24 months of purchase. Store tightly sealed in a clean, dry place.
