The Legendary rice from ‘The Valley of the Wind’

Bario is situated at the northeast part of Sarawak. Standing at 1,300 metres above sea level, this place is surrounded by rolling hills with clear blue sky and lush greenery. This land is well preserved from generation to generation by the friendly and peace-loving people of the Kelabit tribe. ‘Bario’ in local language means ‘wind blowing through wetlands’, where the valley is windy throughout the year, true to its nickname, the ‘Valley of the Wind’.

In the famous Hayao Miyazaki film, ‘Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind’, master Yupa returned to his homeland after a year of travelling, only commented with a sigh, “There is hardly any pure land left in this world.”

This is the depiction of our environment today whereby almost every corner of the Earth is polluted. Nevertheless, we are fortunate to find a rare piece of land in Malaysian Borneo, isolated from man-made pollutions, and is known as the last pure land in Sarawak. This place is named Bario.

Product Highlights

The Legendary rice from ‘The Valley of the Wind’

Quality

  • Blessed with geographical advantage and unique weather, Bario rice is the pride of Sarawak people. The Kelabit tribe carries on the traditional organic farming method through generations, producing one and only, excellent quality Bario rice. When words started spreading around, Bario rice began to be planted in many farms outside of Bario using its seeds. However, it is difficult to ascertain the originality of the seeds and the planting method of the farms outside Bario. It is impossible to duplicate the same fine quality of Bario rice without the geographical and climate advantage of Bario.
  • Bario rice is planted only once a year, giving you the finest quality hill rice that is in your hand now. After each harvest, the farmers rest the soil, the buffalos and themselves. Time allows nature to gently nurture the soil and the feeling of happiness that has been gradually forgotten in life. Bario rice is indeed a blessing from Mother Nature.
