rice seed saving in Thailand

Any type of pigmented rice can be stored for around 18 months. If vacuum packed, shelf life is extended and rice can hold up to 36 months.

Due to lower oxygen levels insect infestation and microorganism growth is nearly impossible. Fragrance preservation is an additional benefit.

We harvest once a year at the end of the Monsoon season, October-November. About 4-8 weeks prior to departure we mill and pack vacuum with low volume batches going overseas four times a year.
