Lundberg Family Farms® traces its roots to 1937, when Albert and Frances Lundberg moved to from Nebraska to California. The Sacramento Valley was the perfect setting for Albert and Frances to pass their legacy of respect for the land on to their four sons. Albert had seen the ravages of the Dust Bowl that resulted from poor soil management and shortsighted farming techniques. After moving the family to Northern California, he impressed upon his sons the need to care for the soil. The Lundbergs went on to pioneer organic rice farming in America.
In the 1960s, Albert’s sons Eldon, Wendell, Harlan and Homer Lundberg saw the need to sell their rice directly to the public, rather than mixing it with rice grown by conventional methods. This gave consumers a choice in the rice they purchased and began the Lundberg Family Farms® brand, which has become synonymous with quality, great-tasting rice products.
For more than 80 years, Lundberg Family Farms® has been using farming methods that care for the soil, wildlife, air and water. This care for the environment is equaled only by care for product quality. What began as a small family rice farm using farming techniques ahead of its time has grown into a mission-driven company that holds itself to a high standard in business, environmental stewardship and its relationship with employees.
Today, the third generation carries on the family heritage as Lundberg Family Farms® continues to use eco-positive farming methods to craft wholesome, healthful rice products while protecting and improving the environment for generations to come.
