Carolina Gold Rice gets its name from the beautiful golden hue in the field right before harvest. This long-grain rice has an exceptional aroma, flavor, and texture.
The bobolink “ricebird” agrees so much that farmers changed planting dates around the migratory pattern of the bobolink to ensure a crop could be made. We are proud to help in South Carolina’s preservation and know it can be enjoyed in every bite.
On their Edisto Island farm, Greg and Betsy Johnsman operate historic working mills, creating grits used in the country’s finest restaurants, including James Beard award-winning chefs in Charleston and around the nation. On a 3-acre garden next to their market, they grow a variety of heirloom vegetables and specialty crops at the request of chefs.
Authenticity is a hallmark of Geechie Boy products. Heirloom corn is used in the antique gristmills, which preserve the natural oils and flavors of the corn resulting in the most flavorful grits.
