Eighth Wonder...
more than a business

After 12 years in business, Eighth Wonder, Inc. is ceasing operation and will no longer be importing and marketing heirloom rice from the historic terraces of the Philippines.

Our website is being upgraded to become an informational site for Cordillera heirloom rice and an archive of the work done by the Cordillera Heirloom Rice Project in its effort to support cultural integrity, the preservation of globally significant high-elevation terraces, and ensure that heritage foods remain in production.

We wish to thank all those who have supported our efforts. Please check back when our archival site is live.
