Rice, Binernal from San Ysiro

Rice, Binernal from San Ysiro


The Dumagats of Rizal prize their rice and wouldn't even think about applying chemicals to it. Above and beyond anything else, their collective life is organized around planting and harvest seasons, with this incredibly fragrant crop as the shared reward. Especially since this is upland rice (that is, a variety that is grown without irrigation), they are dependent on rainfall but not on capital- or water-intensive facilities. This puts an ecological limit to what they can produce which we hope to reinforce and respect by offering limited quantities during the harvest season.

This grain comes in a glass jar containing 800g. 1 rice: 1 water recommended cooking ratio.
