What is Buckwheat?
Buckwheat is a flowering plant cultivated for its hull-like seeds. This nutrient rich seed has many health benefits and is also gluten-free.
Former Morrisville, North Carolina Mayor Jackie Holcombe, founded BuckwheatHull.com to create an employment opportunity for her daughter, Lindsay, born with Down Syndrome. Jackie’s hope from the start was to build an organization to help her daughter and other special-needs individuals to lead fulfilling, productive lives.
Jackie’s efforts, along with Lindsay’s excellent work habits and a feature on the Martha Stewart Show resulted in great success for BuckwheatHull.com. Now as a component of the Life Experiences family of businesses, many more developmentally disabled individuals will benefit from this unique enterprise.

What a great organization! They really help people with dignity and respect. I'm proud to know some of the people involved.
I love this program and the buckwheat I have ordered is great for pillows. Thank you!
