The Birkett Mills is one of the world’s largest manufacturers 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 commitment to customers in all worldwide markets. Quality at competitive prices is key to our success.

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.

The Birkett Mills usually operates 16 hours a day, five days a week. In the early fall, its busiest season, the factory is producing 24 hours a day. Throughout the year, finished products are shipped across the United States, Canada and Western Europe.
