Our Products

Dry Rice & Grains

Village Harvest Organic Jasmine Rice is a versatile long grain, flowery scented rice. It is graded Thai Hom Mali, the highest quality possible, by the Thai government. This means the moisture content, percentage of unbroken kernels, natural fragrance, and slightly sweet flavor is exactly as it should be. Monsoon rains and rich soil produce the soft, moist texture of Village Harvest Jasmine Rice. The natural sweet fragrance is released upon opening every bag. While it can be used for a variety of cuisines, it is shines in Thai, Chinese and Vietnamese dishes.

Village Harvest’s organic basmati rice is certified on-site in India & Pakistan, at the base of the Himalayas. Like traditional basmati, these long grains have a nutty flavor, slightly yellow color and a dry consistency, perfect for fluffy pilafs and other Indian and Middle Eastern fare. It is aged for a year to enhance its nutrients and flavors

Village Harvest travels high into the Andes to harvest our quinoa. The Incas called quinoa “the mother of grain” and fed it to their warriors before battle. Now people refer to it as a “super grain” since it offers a healthy balance of essential amino acids. Each of these nicknames is slightly off. Quinoa is actually a seed – not a grain – from a plant related to spinach, beets, and Swiss chard. Call it what you will. We’ll just call it delicious. Fully cooked in about 10 minutes, it has a pleasant fluffy consistency and delicate, slightly nutty flavor.

Considered a national treasure in Thailand, green curry can now be cherished at your dinner table.

Step into Amma’s kitchen at dinnertime and you will dins a version of khichdi (rice and lentils) simmering on the stovetop. The nutty warmth of basmati rice combined with the earthy aromas of lentils feels like a hug in a bowl! Every family has their own interpretation of this dish and at Village Harvest, we’ve taken this ultimate comfort food and simply added a touch of seasoning.

In Southern India, chitranna, or lemon rice, is a bowl of sunshine on a rainy monsoon day lovingly created by Amma as a treat for her family. The vibrant yellow color and subtly smoky yet tart flavor come from a good dose of turmeric and a splash of lemon juice.
