Watch small Sask. producers harvest some of the world's finest wild rice
"Nothing compares to Canadian wild rice grown in shallow rivers and lakes."
Farmer Tom Hamilton spends late August boating around the shallow shorelines and bays of Lac La Ronge, Saskatchewan. He is harvesting some of the world's most nutritious wild rice, which will later be bought and processed by the Northern Lights Food Company.
The goal is not to harvest as much rice as possible, but to harvest the best quality rice and create projects that respect the local Cree community.
Join Ricardo Larrivée as he cruises the rivers of northern Saskatchewan and learns about traditional harvesting methods.
