Details Arrow down


Steve Sando began the Rancho Gordo company, based in Napa, with the goal of promoting native new world specialty foods, with a focus on beans. Steve reminds us native foods from the Americas are worthy of celebration. The freshness of Rancho Gordo beans offers insight into the pure and individual flavors hidden within each type of bean. 

Earthy, chewy, and nutty, this is a beautiful black wild rice that is an excellent base for cold salads or as an accompaniment to heartier fall and winter dishes.
A lot of recipes will tell you to cook the wild rice with chicken stock but it's not really necessary. Wild rice has a rich, full flavor when fully cooked and frankly stock seems like a waste.
Rancho Gordo Wild Rice is produced right here in Northern California.

Rancho Gordo

Started by Steve Sando as a way to offer locally grown beans to local customers, Rancho Gordo has developed a wide variety of California-grown heirloom beans of the best quality available. More recently they are working with farmers in Mexico and other countries in South America to encourage the farming of indigenous bean varieties.
