Not only does Black Duck
Wild Rice align with the ”locally grown” food movement it is also in-line with
the ever expanding slow food and food sovereignty movements that support the
celebration and resurgence of regionally specific cuisine. Wild Rice is a natural and traditional food,
native to the Kawartha Lakes Region making it staple food stuff for local
communities as well as a great product for chefs, restaurant and resorts to
utilize in their menu; and a prime product to market to visitors to the region
or to visitors to First Nation Communities across South-Central Ontario.
Black Duck Wild Rice has worked hard to develop a unique processing method
which transforms this edible grass seed into a naturally fresh and nutty
flavored grain that keeps it flavor and freshness due to Black Duck's unique
curing and maple wood roasting techniques.
