"A crazy old rice farmer in South Louisiana."

--Ellis Sansel on Ellis Stansel

Even if Ellis Stansel were selling quart jars of mud, you'd get a kick out of doing business with him. Luckily this septuagenarian second-generation rice farmer happens to grow and sell and absolutely superb-tasting special rice that ought to be a staple in every household. It's a long-grain, hybrid strain with the smell and flavor of popping corn. There is no catalog or price list because Ellis wants you to give him a call so he can get to know you, and his order-filling is the epitome of personal service. -from TRUE GRITS

A Southern grocery store between two covers. Provides up-to-date ordering information for more than 150 essential Southern ingredients and handmade specialty foods.
