Konriko Rice Mill

The Conrad Rice Mill has been processing rice in New Iberia, Louisiana, since 1912 -- running longer than any other rice mill in the nation.

Our tour of the mill included a video about the culture and history of the area and the mill, an introduction to their products, a tour of the mill, and an opportunity to sample their Wild Pecan Rice.

We left with a huge sack of rice, a sampling of other products, and improved knowledge about rice and Louisiana's Cajun country. Plus, thanks to our wonderful tour guide Dynell Labiche: recommendations for touring southern Louisiana.
