Rice Farming in Mequon
Michael Schlappi, Red Stone Rice Project

Learn about this successful experiment to grow rice in the Mequon Nature Preserve (the Fondy Farm). The Red Stone Rice Project is demonstrating that special varieties of rice can be commercially grown in Wisconsin - even in our cold climate. Professor Schlappi of Marquette University is also partnering with some Hmong farmers who have rice-growing traditions.
