Rice County

Welcome to Rice County.

Your local Extension Office is a great resource for finding the information that you need. Have a gardening question? Check out our Lawn and Garden area. If you are interested in joining 4-H or being a volunteer, our 4-H and Youth area has all of the information you need to get started. Check out the Crops and Livestock section. Health and Nutrition features a wide variety of resources for food preparation and safety. You will want to check out the information found on our Home and Family and Community Development sections, as well.
