Rice Farming Year in Photos — Downloadable 2012 Calendar

Did you know that September is National Rice Month? Well I was reminded when I got an email about a Delta high school student, Kevin Muzzi, who is teaching first and second grade kids about rice production. You see, Kevin’s family farms rice in Bolivar County, Mississippi, a place I called home for more than a decade. He’s gotten active in helping students in a largely rural & small town area, understand what it takes to produce one of the most familiar grains we have in that area – rice. Just thinking about it makes me crave several cajun dishes (having had shrimp & duck gumbo tonight, I think I’ll be okay). Anyway, Kevin’s giving the students a calendar he made with photos from the family farm for National Rice Month and he (and his mom) sent me these photos that he put on the calendar he’s distributing. They even said we could put the calendar here for you to download! Download Kevin’s Rice Calendar

Thanks Kevin for helping share the story of how rice is grown and some of the facts and figures about this basic food I love so much! If you have questions, we’d be glad to help provide answers!

    Wow, thanks for all the rice trivia, I didn’t know any of that. Like the fact that I went through the month of Sept with out one meal with rice in it and it is national rice month. Usually we have one or two meals at least with rice. Maybe we can have some within the next couple of days.

    Love rice. 🙂 Our CA rice harvest is really late this year and we have some wet storms coming in next week. Not good.

    I had no idea that anyone grew rice in Mississippi! Glad I stopped by!
