Craig Zaunbrecher believes he was born to be a rice farmer. In fact, at age eight he climbed on a tractor without being told and proceeded to try and help his father work the family rice farm. Craig started his own farm at 18 years old, and at age 47 he now works over 3500 acres of rice in Pine Island, Louisiana. As a third-generation rice farmer, Craig is proud to continue the family tradition – doing work that he loves while producing the finest quality rice to feed our country.
