I planted buckwheat as a cover crop and it has done great. Of course now we would like to harvest and use the "grain". How can I remove the outer hull from the "grain"? Buckwheat is used the world over, so there must be a fairly simple method. Thanks All. tprice in sc

Can't answer your question.
However a couple years ago there were many TV commercials selling buckwheat hull pillows. They had drawings of how the hulls all fit together and formed to the shape of your head. If you get them off, don't throw them away.

I have one of those pillows. They make scrunchy noises every time you move. :haha: I quit using mine.

:) People around here in the Valley harvest it using a Combine with the machinery set on "Oats" and then take it to a central plant for hull removal and processing. That's all I know about it other than it makes great pancakes! LOL

Good luck with it..I know it makes a good "double crop" along with sunflowers.

Hey Cyngvaeld: Thank you for the link. It is certainly worth trying. When the buckwheat is ready I will let you know the results. tprice in sc
