According to 'carbonization of rice'(estimated date BC 13~17)excavated from the river valleys of the south han river in heunam-ri, jeomdong-myeon, Yeoju, the history of rice farming in yeoju dates back thousands of years. Yeoju rice lives up to its reputation as it adds abundance to our lives.
Sun-Warm Sunlight, Perfect Climate
Located in the center of the Korean peninsula, Yeoju is the perfect representation of Korean weather. All four seasons happen in Yeoju and because the region is relatively unaffected by floods or drought, the harvest is abundant year round. The mountains in Yeoju are also relatively small, which means that the rice fields get sun all day long. The temperature drops rather drastically at night in Yeoju, a more drastic change than is seen anywhere else on the peninsula, which helps produce sweeter, starchier and better quality rice.
Water-From the Protected Areas of Paldang Reservoir
The clean waters of the South Han River flow through Yeoju and so this area has never lacked water for farming. The water also tastes good. During the Joseon Dynasty, Yeoju rice and water were presented to the king. Today, the area is part of the protected Paldang Reservoir, which protects the quality of the water and, in turn, makes great Yeoju rice.
Surrounded by the Taebaek, Charyeong and Gwangju mountain ranges, Yeoju-gun is famous for its yellow-colored earth. The soil contains a perfect balance of silicic acid and organic matter, which leads to nutrient-packed rice. What’s more, the fine quality clay and materials used for making the famous Yeoju ceramics are also found in this region which prove the high quality Yeoju’s soil.
The color of the high quality Yeoju rice is so white, it’s as if each grain was made out of white clay porcelain.
Each grain glistens with sheen and has a soft, chewy texture. (Patent No. 2002-8405)
