  • Sable Long Grain Black Rice

    This Sable Long Grain Black Rice is grown on a small family farm in the Mississippi delta committed to sustainable, regenerative agriculture. Beyond its amazing flavor lies a powerhouse of nutrition, boasting a rich array of antioxidants, protein, iron, and fiber—a testament to the farm's commitment to wholesome, regenerative practices. But what truly sets this rice apart is its captivating allure, with each kernel exuding a subtle nuttiness and earthy aroma, accompanied by a mesmerizing deep purple-black hue.

    Yet, behind every grain lies a tale steeped in history. Black rice traces its origins to ancient China, where its bold flavor and striking appearance captured the hearts of nobility and royalty. Heralded as a culinary treasure, it was bestowed the enigmatic title of "forbidden rice," its consumption reserved solely for the privileged few.

    ABOUT THE FARMERS

    two brooks farm sunsetTwo Brooks Rice is the product of years of reflection on our food production systems and how those impact our natural world. As a 10th generation farming family, Lawrence, Abbey and Sarah live and farm on the bayou in the most charming of Mississippi’s small towns-- Sumner. Theirs is a farm that lives in harmony with nature, giving back more than it takes. They practice no-till farming, they use no pesticides and they capture rain water and runoff to conserve our water resources.  “Years ago, after watching the overwintering waterfowl population explode, and the benefits they give to the land, after watching the eagles roost around, after watching the deer population go up, I started thinking about what I was doing. I started thinking about the soil microbiology and biology. How, by the fact that we had curtailed tillage and allowed waterfowl to do the tillage, we were beginning to rebuild the soil structure with naturally living organisms that enhance the rice plants health, and require far fewer synthetic inputs (to this day I use no insecticides or fungicides).”
