Over 80 Years of California Rice Farming
Carriere Family Farms continues its long tradition of growing quality California rice. Currently, we are in the fifth generation and are proud of the operation we have become over the past decades.
Farming and Land Stewardship —
now and into the future
We manage and farm rice acreage in Glenn and Butte counties, a majority of which are medium grain Cal Rose varieties. From the hand-built harvester made by Wilfred Carriere in the 1950s to the state-of-the-art machinery that runs today, we exemplify tradition and innovation with each rice harvest that passes.
Solar panels provide power for the water pumps in our fields, and during the off-season, our fields provide refuge for migrating birds along the Pacific Flyway. Most importantly, we take pride in our history as we look forward to a future of growing healthy products and continuing our land stewardship efforts for years to come.
