Braggadocio Rice and Organic Farming in Missouri

Steve McKaskle has tried a variety of organic farming ventures, and now produces organic rice and popcorn from his farm in southeast Missouri.

Steve McKaskle kneels beside the gravestone of Kay's great-great-grandfather, Jefferson J. Long, who founded Braggadocio and the farm that is now in its 7th generation. The family cemetery is surrounded by the organic popcorn fields adjacent to the McKaskles' backyard.
