a great place to learn history of rice and the mill. Tour the mill and shop at the store. Very unique items are for sale. Shipping is available, too. It is the longest running rice mill, too.

Lots of things to sample and to look at. Very engaging personnel in store and enjoyed our conversations with them. Bought some interesting spice blends.

We stop by the store to take a tour of the rice mill. The tour also colluded descriptions of the products the company makes. We bought some of the rice and some of the spices to try at home.

We enjoyed the simplicity and the integrity of the process of this century old rice processing company.

When you first see this plant, you'll think it non-operational as it is rather old, but indeed it operates with its 17 employees and makes an amazing number of products, most importantly processed rice. The tour and short film is not time-consuming but is totally informative and enjoyable. Take a few minutes to learn about rice growing and processing in... More

The history of the rice mill is great---it weaves the past with the present and the guide explained all of the products they produce from rice. Great selection of cookbooks to choose from as well as a well-stocked store selling their products. Did not know that the rice fields also produce crayfish---a staple of Cajun cooking. The inside of the... More

We were worried because we had two dogs in our car - so parked in the shade of the tower of the mill. Asking if this was "okay" - the guide simply said - bring them in - we are pet friendly. BUT - - - I said - we plan to take the tour! She said "that's fine -... More

We did not have time this trip for a tour of the mill but there are tours available. We did take some photos of the mill and silo that I believe are going to make beautiful prints. There is a gift shop with all sorts of gifts both food and non-food and always some rice dish to try. It will... More

I agree with other reviewers, the film looks outdated but the Cajun history which is told here is important and whole thing just adds to the experience. The shop is packed with rice, Cajun, Louisiana or Konriko related items. You can taste some of the product without any pressure to buy anything. This is one of those stops where you... More
