In 1942, the Falcon family began its seed rice business. Edward and Evelyn Falcon would purchase rough rice from area farmers in the Fall. They then cleaned, treated, and resold it for seed just in time for Spring planting.
A milling operation was installed in 1950, and soon Falcon Rice Mill began selling rice under the names Ed’s, Randy’s, and Falcon rice. Later, other brands were developed to include our popular Cajun Country brand of long, medium, whole grain brown, jasmine and popcorn rice.
The Cajun Country brand has earned a solid reputation with cooks who want the best from their gumbo, jambalaya, etouffee, and other popular Cajun dishes. Whether it’s firm long grain, tender medium grain, healthy whole grain brown, or the slightly distinctive aroma of our popcorn rice or Jasmine rice, Cajun Country has been the leading brand of rice in Louisiana for those that demand quality products when cooking delicious meals.
