Product Description: Ferron's Carnaroli Rice has a natural nutty and herbaceous flavour. It is very easy to use as it is harder to overcook than other varieties. Use for risotto or minestrone dishes.
Region: Isola della Scala, Veneto, Italy
Producer Info: Ferron is a fourth-generation family run company located in the picturesque, Isola della Scala, Verona. In the mid-70s, Ferron recognised that mass production of inferior rice would lead to extinction of two exceptional Veronese rice varieties, Carnaroli and Vialone. This lead to the establishment of a consortium of rice growers in the Isola della Scala valley to protect these delicate species. Ferron rice is organic and grown without the use of pesticides or herbicides. In non-planting years, corn and medicinal herbs are cultivated to replenish the soil with essential nutrients. Water from pure and unpolluted underground springs encourages pristine crop growth. The rice paddies are home to carp fish, providing a natural pest control and delicate ecosystem where rice can flourish.
