Our Farm History

Rice Farms is currently a 5th generation family farming operation that started in 1914 when James Edward Rice moved from North Eastern Kansas to Wanatah, Indiana.  From 1914-1916, they rented a farm on US30 and in 1917 they were able to buy the farm that our operation is currently based on.  James retired and passed the operation on to his son Edward who in turn passed the operation to his son Gene who retired in 1998 and passed the operation on to his son Scott who currently operates the farm with his son  James.  James and his family live right here on the Home farm on 1350 S.  James and his wife Ashley have 3 children and hope to one day be able to continue the family tradition of incorporating some or all of their children into the family farming operation.
