About Bertrand Rice
Rice, owned by David and Lorraine Bertrand, is located
10105 Seward Lane off the Lauderdale Highway between
Elton & Kinder. David has been in the rice business all
his life. An artist at heart, he has found a way to
pursue his creative inclinations. Each year he creates a
new design for the Christmas season. It
is then printed on cotton rice bags. If you would like
we will print a personalized greeting or custom logo on
the back of the bags in full color. Or he can create a
bag for any special occasion. You may also purchase rice
in plain cotton bags throughout the year for those of
you who need rice year round.
Born in 1955, Louisiana natives David and Lorraine Bertrand
live in the rural farmland of Ile de Pins (Pine Island)
outside of Elton, Louisiana. They live on the ancestral
family farm where Lorraine grew up. David's latest
project is the children's book "Petite Ga-Tor & The
Musical Grand Bois" based on Lorraine's ancestors and
what brought them to live at this site. David has
written and illustrated the book.
David began producing Christmas Rice Bags in 1984 and
Mardi Gras Rice Bags in 1992. In 1997 he relocated the
business to its current location.
Lorraine has retired from her career as a school nurse
and now works with David full time.
