Organic Buckwheat Flour
With a history going back to 6000 BCE, buckwheat is more closely related to rhubarb than it is to grain. It works great as a cover crop, growing rapidly to keep out weeds, but we like it best in our breakfasts. The light caramel color of butterscotch before it’s ground, it yields a nutty, vaguely bitter flavor millennia in the making.
Good news! This packaging is 100% curbside recyclable. The paper bag is also home compostable, just peel off the sticker first.
These are general guidelines for broadly-recyclable materials. Check with your local recycler to confirm what they take.

How to use
Buckwheat flour is a classic in pancakes and crepes, but we also love it in soda bread. Just mix with bread flour, buttermilk, and a few baking cabinet favorites, then cook.
What People Are Saying
- blueberry bread
To be the first time I have used any of your products I was pleasantly surprised. Because of my arthritis I was looking a better flour to bake with. I tried the blueberry bread on the label and totally enjoyed it.
Have not used it yet, I know it'll be great, do you sell a larger bag. Thank you !
Grandkids Approved and Classics for Camping
Great buckwheat—stamp of approval from our grandkids when Pappy Joe makes them and adds blueberries. My wife and I enjoy them when we are out camping, come out of our tent in the morning and I start the coffee percolating and flip and serve the buckwheat pancakes with a steaming mug of coffee—of course I add the blueberries before flipping.
Locally made and gluten free!
I was so excited to find a local source of this flour! I mainly use it to replace graham flour in my gluten free crackers and bread, but I see some ployes in my future and am definitely going to try the blueberry bread (with Maine blueberries, of course) from the recipe on the back.
