HARVEST OF THE MONTH: Brown Rice

HARVEST OF THE MONTH: Brown Rice

We were pleased to offer Alachua County Public School students local brown rice in January! Congaree and Penn began growing rice on four acres in  Jacksonville in 2014, reviving a southern tradition that began in the late 17th century when rice was first introduced to the United States.

School Chef Moss created a pilaf recipe that was delicious, and student and staff enjoyed learning more about rice production and nutrition.
