Arkansas Rice – Ralston Family Farms

With a lineage of ten generations, the Ralston family considers farming more than just a job; it’s a calling. The land is situated in the beautiful Arkansas River Valley – offering unique varieties of single-batch artisanal rice and guaranteeing unparalleled quality. The vertical operations ensure complete traceability, accounting for every step of the farm-to-table journey.

With a commitment to sustainable and regenerative farming practices, Ralston Family Farms makes improving the soil conditions and addressing climate change a priority. This translates into healthier land and stronger communities. Today, there are three generations of the Ralston family working with this shared vision. Through Robin and Tim’s careful oversight and commitment to excellence, this legacy continues. 

 The farm recently received recognition as a Regenified Tier 1 Verified farm – one of few farms in the United States – with plans to incorporate a 20-acre solar farm to harness the power of sunshine and provide a sustainable energy source for the state-of-the-art rice milling facility, computerized grain storage and electric pumps in the field.
