Northern Lite

Northern Lite


Northern Lite is grown in the Fraser Valley, British Columbia, Canada.  This mountain valley has rich glacial soils and the rice is watered from pure mountatin streams.  Our soil, water, and northern climate remains enviromentally natural.


NO PESTICIDES OR HERBICIDES are used.  Milled naturally and packaged in a re-sealable and recylable bag.


Can be served as steamed rice and is chef preferred for rice recipes such as risotto, sushi, and many more asian dishes.




  • Seed Information

    The seed was selected from a Northern Japanese variety.  This fine grain rice's heritage is from Japanese Nanatsuboshi (seven stars) rice.  The long summer days in the Fraser Valley, north of the 49th parallel infuse the rice grains with great flavor.  Sun, soil, and mountain water give the rice its unique rich Fraser Valley flavors and texture.
