Carolina Plantation Rice comes to you from one of the only colonial plantations in the Carolinas to grow rice for commercial use – Plumfield Plantation on the Great Pee Dee River.

In 1685, a distressed merchant ship paid for repairs in Charleston with a small quantity of rice seed from Madagascar. Dr. Henry Woodward planted the seed in South Carolina, beginning the state’s 200-year history as the leading rice producer in the United States. At the turn of the century, with a weak market because of the War Between the States, inadequate machinery and competition from the Gulf states, the rice culture came to an end in the Lowcountry South.

Carolina Plantation reintroduced aromatic rice to South Carolina in 1996. With rice once again in her fields, Plumfield Plantation proudly serves a truly distinctive taste of the 18th century southern rice plantations. We are Proud to be South Carolina’s first product made with Green-e-Certified Renewable Energy.

Carolina Plantation Rice devotes a substantial portion of its revenues to enhance the habitat for wild ducks and geese at Plumfield Plantation, a designated waterfowl preserve. The rice also provides a source of food and cover for these migratory waterfowl. Rice sales fully support the restoration of this plantation and other similar historic colonial properties.
