About Us

The Birkett Mills is the World’s largest manufacturer of Buckwheat products. Established – and in continual operation – since 1797, we have over 200 years of buckwheat, soft white wheat, and custom grain milling experience in the U.S. market, as well as many worldwide customers. Our longevity is due to our tradition of committment to customers in all worldwide markets. Quality (at competitive prices) is paramount to our existence.

Headquartered on Main Street in the beautiful village of Penn Yan (named after its original Pennsylvania and Yankee settlers), our mill serves as America’s buckwheat capital, right in the heart of New York’s picturesque Finger Lakes region.

Our longevity is due to our tradition of total commitment to all our customers. Quality at competitive prices is key to our success.

The Birkett Mills usually operates 16 hours a day five days a week, but in the early fall, its busiest season, the factory is producing 24 hours a day, with finished products shipped throughout the United States, Canada and Western Europe.
