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!
