Delta Blues Rice
Delta Blues Rice is rooted in Southern culinary tradition. We grow and mill our rice on a multi-generational family farm in the Mississippi Delta. Our farm has been operating continuously for over ninety years, and through our rice business we are seeking to share part of our agricultural heritage with our customers. We use only the highest quality seed to grow our rice; the rice we grow in our fields is the rice served on our customers’ plates. Each step in the process from planting to bagging is performed by a family member. We mill to order so that we can provide the freshest rice possible, and we only use one variety of rice so that we can ensure a distinctive (and delicious) flavor and consistent cooking properties. We offer long grain white rice, long grain brown rice, white rice grits, brown rice grits, and jasmine rice.
What Makes Our Products Great?The rice we sell is the rice we grow and serve to our own family. We love sharing our family-grown rice products with other families and giving them the ability to serve a healthy and delicious meal to those they love. Our rice is grown responsibly and sustainably and is minimally processed. To top off all of that, our rice products taste amazing. You can't beat the taste of fresh, milled-to-order rice. Several of customers tell us that our rice reminds them of family meals from long ago and that our rice has distinctive flavor that is hard to replicate. Also, our products are super versatile and make a great addition to any meal. Visit our website to find cooking inspiration.

What makes us most proud of producing Genuine MS products?We love getting to work hard and share the fruits (or grains!) of our labor with our customers. It is such an encouragement to tend a crop through the various farming seasons and then through the milling process and onto our customers' plates. Hearing how much people enjoy our rice and seeing that it is a benefit to their families encourages us through the hard times of farming. Selling a product directly to individual consumers is one of our favorite aspects of our business because we get to know our customers and see how they use our products. We are also proud to be farmers, and one of the most important parts of our business is telling agriculture's story. Agriculture is vital to Mississippi's economy, and we are proud to show our customers what we do. Mississippi's farmers produce food and fiber for our nation and our world, and they provide much needed revenue for our state. We are extremely grateful to be a part of that.
