Family Farms since 1937
Family-owned and operated
Committed to producing the finest quality rice and rice products for your family. Since 1937, the Lundberg family has been growing healthy, great tasting rice while respecting and sustaining the earth. Today, the third and fourth generations carry on the family heritage by using eco-positive farming methods that produce wholesome, healthful rice, rice cakes, rice chips and risottos while improving and protecting the environment for generations to come.
Our company traces its roots back to 1937, when Albert and Frances Lundberg moved to California from Nebraska. Albert had seen the ravages of the Dustbowl that resulted from poor soil management and short-sighted farming techniques. After moving the family to Northern California’s fertile Sacramento Valley, he impressed upon his four sons the need to care for the soil.
In the 1960’s, Albert’s four sons, Eldon, Wendell, Harlan and Homer saw the need to sell the rice they were growing directly to the public since it was being grown so differently from conventional rice. This gave consumers a choice in the rice they purchased and began the Lundberg Family Farms® brand.
Over 80 years later
Today, over 80 years later, the third and fourth generation Lundberg family members are still carrying on the family heritage by using eco-positive farming methods to produce wholesome, healthful rice products while improving and protecting the environment for generations to come.
Leave the land better than you found it.

Although we produce both brown and white rice, the whole grain goodness of brown rice has a special place in our hearts. That’s why we label all of our whole grain products with the Whole Grain Stamp; so you know just how much of those delicious whole grains you’re getting in each serving. Learn more about the Whole Grain Stamp.
We regularly review our carefully selected growers, handlers, and processors to ensure food safety regulations and agricultural standards are consistently met. Our strict quality requirements, which range from kernel moisture to prepared rice appearance/flavor/texture, are routinely monitored from harvest through final processing and packaging. We also work with AIB International to ensure our facilities meet superior food safety & sanitation standards.
