Medium grain brown rice gets its characteristic nutty flavour and firmer texture from the presence of nutritious outer bran layers. The bran layers are rich in minerals and vitamins, especially the B-complex group.
Medium grain brown rice has a shorter, wider kernel, when compared to “long grain rice”. The cooked grains are more moist and tender, and have a greater tendency to cling together than long grain.
Brown rice does take longer to cook than white rice, but is more tasty & nutritious.

HOW TO USE
The cooked grains are more moist and tender, and have a greater tendency to cling together than long grain. This quality makes this variety of rice suitable for soups, casseroles or stuffing’s, however it is also great in a salad, pilaf or as a side dish with a curry or stir-fry.
GROWING & PROCESSING
This biodynamic 100% Rain-fed Rice is grown in Northern NSW purely on rainwater. The Slater family farm is certified biodynamic as well as organic. Biodynamic farming is a deeper form of organic farming that works on the fundamental principle that the farm is a living organism. It’s all about balancing the ecological inter- relationship of soil, plants and animals as a self-nourishing system without external inputs.
This rice does not require irrigation but does require warmth and high summer rainfall to grow, perfect for the Northern Rivers Region of NSW. Absolutely no flood irrigation was used to grow the rice; it is 100% Rainfed! Brett grows and processes this 100% rainfed rice using his newly built mill, on his certified Biodynamic farm, eliminating any of those additional food miles!
Until recently, all rice in Australia was grown in 'flood' irrigated paddies. Regular rice farming, according to the CSIRO, requires around 1550L of water to grow just 1kg of rice! With water being such a precious commodity in Australia today, this rice is not just packed full of goodness for us, but is great for our land too.
