Wild Rice isn’t actually rice! It is a wild aquatic grass and its closest relatives are other cereals such as corn, wheat, barley and even bamboo. It’s the only grain native to North America. Many Wild Rice producers still use the traditional method of harvesting, two people travel by a canoe out into the water when the rice is ready to harvest. The “poler” sits in the back and The “knocker” stands up in the middle of the boat and uses a stick to bend – the sometimes as big as 10 ft tall – Wild Rice stalks over the boat.
