Fascinating look at rice processing
Feb 2020
Very enthusiastic tour guide did nice job of explaining the machinery we were looking at. Interesting miniature display that showed all the steps involved in rice processing.

Fantastic tour full of history
Nov 2019
This was possibly the best field trip we have ever taken as a group of home schoolers. Our tour guide, Kesla, was THE BEST!!! She is a former elementary school teacher and college professor, and her speaking style was fun and informative. She clearly loves the rice mill and the history around it, and was able to share so much information and history with us as we toured. Her enthusiasm for the mill and the local history was contagious and we had so much fun listening to her stories! No question was too hard for her to handle, and everyone, from the ten-year-old crowd to the adults, had an amazing time. If we are ever in Louisiana again, we will definitely come back for another tour, and we will call ahead to make sure Kesla is there!

Enjoyed. People very friendly. Bought some items in the store including a coffee that we can't find around here. Good way to spend an hour or so.

Konrico Rice Mill is the name now
Apr 2019 • Couples
We stopped by the store and were warmly greeted by the woman in the store who gave us a lot of information about their rice products. We tried the Pecan Rice, which was delicious. There is nothing "Pecan" in it , but it has a nutty taste. We did not tour the mill, it was not running the day we were there and it was not offered. We thought it was worth the stop.

Oldest working rice mill in the country. Very knowledgeable and enthusiastic tour guide. Nice video with some history of the area included. Relatively inexpensive and can bundle with other tours for better price

Working? Factory
Sep 2018 • Family
Was excited for chance to learn about rice milling, something we don't have up north. The introductory video was not exactly up to IMAX standards but it was informative. We then left the small auditorium and toured- the store we had just looked through while waiting for the tour. After too much product promotion, we made our way down the sidewalk to the dilapedated mill building next door which was strangely quiet. One kid asked where all the workers were. Answer was they were in another building that you can't tour actually filling orders. We spent a long time in front of a model of the mill that was, no kidding, some employee's kid's school project. It was interesting to see baby food jars of the various types of rice and the stages of production, but I would like to have seen some of the lines running and see the rice actually go from truck to shipped product. I am allergic to cats and dust and this place had plenty of both. Younger kids will be more interested in the cats than the guide's presentation. Older kids will probably be bored by both. Also, the mill floors are rough and uneven, difficult for strollers and wheelchairs. If we had known how little we would actually see we would have skipped it in favor of one of the many other activities in the area. On the plus side, it was only $4 each so we weren't out much, the kitties were cute, and the guide was still quite spry in her 70's (must be from eating all that rice!), and had some great information, stories, and quotes (Don't tip a cow over or you'll get sour milk).

Interesting to see a small production facility
Jul 2018 • Couples
I find seeing how various products are produced interesting so we went to learn more. We were given a guided tour ($4 per person) through the factory. Unfortunately they were not in production mode that day, but it was still interesting to learn about their process and see the equipment. It is a small family owned factory and I enjoyed the tour.

A Wonderful Tour by a Great Guide
Nov 2017 • Couples
As far as we're concerned, the guide makes or breaks a tour and we had the best! You start out with a film about the area and the rice crop going back to the early 1900's and life in the area. The original mill is still used today and has been included on the National Register of Historical Places. You are taken through the steps of how rice is grown, cleaned, milled and shipped. The company makes several products including several gluten free ones in a different facility. The most amazing part of the tour is EVERYTHING is done by only 13 employees and products are shipped all over the world!
