Organic Short Grain Brown Rice - 12 lb

Short grain brown rice is one of the most full-flavored rices and is an excellent source of whole grain. After cooking, the grains are soft and cling together. Because of these properties, Short Grain Brown rice is especially suitable in recipes where a creamy texture is desired, such as puddings, rice balls, croquettes, paella, and risotto.

Proper Storage

  • Please consume within 6 months of opening the bag.
  • The brown rice you have purchased is food, please care for it properly. We recommend putting the rice in separate, closable containers, and storing in a cool dark place, like a pantry, refrigerator or freezer.

Cooking Instructions

  • 1 cup Lundberg® Short Grain Brown rice
  • 2 cups water or broth
  • 1 tbsp. butter (optional)
  • salt to taste

Put all ingredients in a pot with a tight-fitting lid. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer 50 minutes. Do not remove lid. Remove from heat and allow to sit, covered, for 10 minutes. Fluff with a fork. A rice cooker may be used with the same water-to-rice ratio. Yield: 3 cups.

    I eat this rice pretty much every day.  (I don't eat bread.)  My favorite!
    2nd place is the brown rice couscous. 
    Great flavor, wonderful body. 
    I cook this in a rice cooker, following manufacturer's instructions.  Comes out perfect each time.

    Unable to find the 12lb bag for purchase. Costco stopped getting the bag. Let me know where can I find the 12lb bag.
  3. Lundberg Family Farms 15 Nov

    The 12lb bag is actually produced specifically for Costco stores so it's the only place you'll be able to find it.  It's possible that they are just temporarily out of stock or that your particular store stopped carrying it.  You can speak to one of the Costco employees and find out for sure.
  4. Mrs. Cays 19 Nov

    Bought the 12lb. bag at Costco.  Thank you for producing such an excellent product.  If I put it in an air-tight plastic storage container, should it also be refrigerated or can it sit on the shelf? Also, is freezing with or without a container possible?
  5. Lundberg Family Farms 29 Nov

    Mrs. Cays, refrigeration or freezing is always best for preventing bugs, but an air-tight container should work just fine too :)

    I have been looking for this rice in almost every costco store located in NY, NJ and CT region. None of the stores carry this rice any more. Is this discontinued from costco stores? If yes, please advise where can I buy this rice in bulk quantity.

  7. Sam 10 Jan

    My costco in PA said this item has been discontinued. They did not seem to have a clue whether it will come again.

    Really feel bad, as we liked this a lot.
  8. Lundberg Family Farms 12 Jan

    The 12lb Short Grain Brown Rice bag has been discontinued at the East Coast Costco locations.  If you would like to know where you can now purchase this product in bulk, leave a comment with your location & we will get back to you asap.
  9. Melanie 15 Jan

    is the 1/4 cup serving size prepared or dry?
  10. David 16 Jan

    Am also very interested in finding an alternative to Costco to buy the 12 lb. bag. It's a wonderful staple in our home. We are located in Manhattan, NY. Zip Code 10028. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much!
  11. Naveen 18 Jan

    Thanks for your reply, I live in Norwalk, Connecticut. Please let me know the nearby locations where I can buy organic short/long grain brown rice in bulk.
  12. aakash 18 Jan

    I live in Delaware - 19701, can you please tell me where i can purchase this product in Bulk. Costco here in my area stopped carrying this product.
  13. Lundberg Family Farms 19 Jan

    Melanie- the serving size of 1/4 cup is for dry rice.
  14. Jessica 19 Jan

    I live in the Bronx (Bronx, NY 10463) and was getting your rice at Costco as well.   I wish Costco would stock it again!  Maybe this is a sign that we should all move west?
  15. Stephen 23 Jan

    I live in Ellicott City, MD. 21043.This is the only type of rice i eat and i have been to all the Costco location around Howard County and found no store that have this rice.Please where can i buy around or online.
  16. K cohen 01 Feb

    I bought Brown rice from Cosco and I loved it.  They do not have it any more or ran out of it.  Could you supply again and that is only rice I would love to eat. thanks
  17. k cohen 01 Feb

    What is the price on this rice bag of 12LB.  Thanks
  18. Ying 01 Feb

    My family has enjoyed and almost eaten exclusively Lundberg's organic short grain brown rice since we came across the 12lb bag at the Costco in Everett, MA.  I would like to know where I can now purchase this product in bulk.  My zip code is 02141.  Thank you!
  19. sat 02 Feb

    I left a comment on Nov 5 about 12lb organic brown rice. Since then many comments are posted about its availability. I am still looking for it as it is the best. I started to buy 2lb bags but it is a pain,, my location is CT 06514. My Costco discontinued it.  I wish you come up with solution as soon as possible. Thanks

  23. Gibran 10 Feb

    I am very interested in know carbs in 3/4 or 1 cup of cooked brown rice as opposed to the dry-rice 1/4 cup specification on the label. Please advise, thanks!

    Loving this rice in San Diego, CA.!!!
  24. Lundberg Family Farms 28 Feb

    Hi Gibran,
    1/4 cup of dry rice makes approx. 3/4 cups of cooked rice, so there will be 40g of Carbs in 3/4 cups of cooked rice :)
  25. MM 09 Mar

    Hi.. Like the others, our family became hooked on this rice after buying it at Costco.  We live near Burlington VT and would love to know where we could buy it in bulk again.  Thanks.
  26. Lundberg Family Farms 16 Mar

    We love this rice! We used to purchase it out west at Costco, but recently moved to Hanover, NH. I've searched in local stores including the local 'big box store' (BJ's) and have had no luck. Where can I find it nearby? Thank you!

    I almost have the same question :-) Loved the rice, where can I purchase it in bulk in 48084 area zip?? Most online stores sell the product, but are way pricier.
  32. Wendy 29 Jan

    I just found this product in Costco and I love it. Thanks for this wonderful product! I have a question about it. How should I wash it before cooking? Or maybe I don't have wash it? Thanks!
  33. Lundberg Family Farms 21 Feb

    Hi Wendy! Washing is not necessary, but if you choose to do so you can just rinse it in a colander until the water runs clear. Enjoy!
  34. Tony 12 Apr

    Hi I would like to buy this Organic Short Grain Rice in bulk in Florida. I am located outside of Orlando Florida in the town of Oviedo, FL. My zip is 32765. Please let me know where I can find this product in my area.

    Warm regards,

  35. Lundberg Family Farms 11 May

    Hi Tony, Unfortunately, the 12 lb. rice bag has been discontinued in your region. However, Whole Foods should have our Organic Short Grain Brown Rice in their bulk bins! Here is the address of the Whole Foods nearest to you:

    Winter Park Whole Foods

    1989 Aloma Ave.

    Winter Park, FL. 32792


    We hope you enjoy the rice!

  36. erin simpson 29 May

    I live in the Midwest (Chicago area) and my costco does not have the 12 lb bag anymore either.  Zip code is 60491.  Where else can I find this??? I realy don't want to buy 16 oz. bags--my family goes through it too fast.
  37. Sravanthi 17 Jul

    Our family loves this rice. But after Costco discontinued this product we couldn't find it anywhere. I live in Chicago northwest suburbs, Illinois. Please let me know where I can find this in my area.

  38. Sandy 18 Jul


    Please let me know where I can find this rice in Chicago area.

    Thanks much,
  39. Lundberg Family Farms 18 Jul

    Hi Sravanthi, We are glad to hear your family enjoys the rice and we are sorry you have had trouble finding it. Our "Where to Buy" page may be helpful to you. If you can tell us your zip code, we would be happy to locate the product for you!
  40. Sravanthi 19 Jul

    Lundberg Family Farms,

    Thank you for responding. From "Where to Buy" page, I could locate stores close to my place. I'll check out the stores soon. Hope they carry the rice in bulk at reasonable price like costco as we are big family and we consume lot of rice.

    Thanks for your help,
  41. Miffy 25 Jul

    Hi LFF,

    We love your products in general.  Our Costco in Chicago also stopped carrying your brown rice.  My zipcode is 60302.  Can you direct me to a store where I can purchase in bulk?



  42. Sravanthi 01 Aug


    I searched most of the stores (Whole Foods, Jewel Osco) close to my place and they carry this rice in small quantities (2 LB). We consume rice daily, so I am looking in bulk (12lb or more). My zip code is 60067. Please let me know where I can find the rice in bulk.

    Thanks again,
  43. Lundberg Family Farms 08 Aug

    Hi Sravanthi, We are sorry to hear you are still having trouble finding our product! Did you check the bulk bins at Whole Foods? They often carry our Organic Short Grain Brown Rice there so customers can buy it in larger quantities.

  44. Lundberg Family Farms 08 Aug

    Hi Miffy, We are glad to hear you like our rice, but sorry you are having trouble finding it! Our best advice is to check the bulk bins at Whole Foods. We have located the following Whole Foods near you: 

    Whole Foods Market
    7245 West Lake St.
    River Forest, IL, IL 60305

  45. nancy tice 27 Aug

    Looking for short grain brown organic rice.  None at the Costco in Madison, WI, or Kansas City, MO. Live in OK and are really bummed because we eat it everyday.  Thanks, nancy
  46. nancy tice 27 Aug

    Do you fill orders from Richvale?  Nearest Whole Foods is 100 miles.  Has Costco discontinued the large bags.  We should all request Costco to carry it again.  thanks, nancy
  47. Lundberg Family Farms 14 Sep

    Nancy, sounds like you've traveled a long ways looking for this! I would suggest checking out our Where to Buy page to find a location nearest you in Oklahoma. If there is a Whole Foods near you, check their bulk bins for Organic Short Grain Brown Rice.
  48. Dan 26 Sep

    I purchased this 12 lb bag from Costco a little while ago. My girlfriend's mom could not find it anymore. Hopefully they were just out because this has been my favorite brown rice so far!!! I know AJ's in my area has it but they're usually insanely expensive! :-)
  49. Lundberg Family Farms 28 Sep

    Dan, not sure of your location, but if you provide us with your zip code, we'd be happy to check the availability at your nearest Costco. Another option is to find a store that carries our rice in bulk bins and buy from there! Whole Foods is a great place to go if there is one near you! Hope this helps!
  50. Dan 11 Oct

    85383 is my zip code. I don't have a whole foods close to me unfortunately. Just had some of your rice this morning! The best!
  51. Lundberg Family Farms 12 Oct

    Dan, the closest place to you would be Supertarget at 24890 N Lake Pleasant Pkwy Peoria, AZ 85383, and Arizona Health Foods at 10924 W. Bell Rd. Sun City, AZ 85351. These places won't carry the 12lb Short Grain Brown, but check to see if they have bulk bins available, otherwise they should have our 1lb and 2lb packages. You can fine more locations with our Store Locator. Hope this helps!
