Introducing Andy's Rice Charleston Gold Rice, a truly exceptional heirloom rice that stands as the direct descendent of the revered Carolina Gold Rice. From the moment you unseal the bag, a distinctive and enchanting aroma envelops your senses, setting the stage for a culinary experience like no other.
What makes Charleston Gold Rice truly unique is not only the extraordinary seed itself, a product of natural cross-pollination between Carolina Gold Rice and aromatic varieties, but also the meticulous care and attention to detail provided by the dedicated farmers at Andy's Rice. Nestled on their own farm, the rice is cultivated in peaty fields that boast a wealth of minerals and nutrients, imparting a flavor profile unparalleled in the world of rice.
In a departure from the practices of many modern rice producers, Andy's Rice takes pride in growing their own rice, avoiding the common approach of harvesting from multiple growers. This commitment ensures a level of quality and consistency that is second to none. The fields, strategically located near the ocean, benefit from the ebb and flow of the tides, providing a natural and unique flooding process. Simultaneously, the farm is far enough inland to receive freshwater river irrigation, striking a perfect balance that not only results in delicious rice but also reflects a more sustainable and harmonious farming approach.
As part of their land stewardship program, Andy's Rice employs traditional rotational crop methods, further demonstrating their dedication to preserving the environment and maintaining the integrity of the land. The result is not just a bag of rice but a testament to the rich heritage and unwavering commitment to quality that defines Charleston Gold Rice from Andy's Rice. Elevate your culinary creations with this beloved heirloom rice, and savor the unique flavors that only a time-honored legacy can provide.

ABOUT THE FARMER
White House Farms is nestled in the heart of Georgetown County's historic rice-belt region in South Carolina. The stewardship of this land, dating back to the 18th century, captured the imagination of the current caretakers who took over in 2011. Drawn to the rich history of the peaty, muddy tidal fields, the family is on a mission to revive the rice-growing tradition that endured wars, hurricanes, and even the Great Depression. Led by the dedication of the family—comprising Hayden, the wife, and Paul, the son—they proudly resurrected rice production at White House Farms, now standing as one of the largest single estate growers of the esteemed Charleston Gold Rice. This superior variety, derived from the heirloom Carolina Gold, pays homage to Georgetown County's legacy as one of the world's foremost rice-growing regions, making every grain a testament to the enduring spirit of the land.
