Dear Friends of Chieftain and Rice River Farms...

As we navigate the changes going on in the world, we hope you, your family and staff, all remain safe. We want you to know that we are thinking of you during this time. We're here to support you as you support those members of your community.

We want to assure you that our doors remain open during this time as we are dilligently working to package and distribute our product where needed. We are taking all precautions to ensure the safety of our employees, our product and our practices.

Our partnership with you is important. For those customers who remain open during this time, we are here continuing to offer you the Wild Rice and Wild Rice blends that we are best known for.  Our hundreds of specialty items remain available but due to the nature of the products, we might experience limited supply as I’m sure you will understand. However, we will make every effort to deliver the products that you need.

We feel for our customers who have had to close their doors during this difficult time and want to assure you that we will be here when you re-open your doors.

If you have had to alter your menu choices and are looking for a dish that will work well as a carry-out and re-heat option with the same delicious flavor that your customers have come to expect from you, don’t hesitate to give us a call for a recipe idea. For those of you experiencing shortages of shelf stable products or who are facing demands for larger sized packaging of products, we are here to help as well.  

Stay healthy and safe.  Call us even if you just need to talk to another person. We are available at 800-262-6368, from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Central Standard Time, Monday through Friday.


Jill's Signature
