Jackie Holcombe, Founder

The idea was the brainchild of Morrisville, North Carolina (former) Mayor Jackie Holcombe, who 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 combined to result 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.

    I understand the comments about the shipping costs. It is the reason I found this company. I just sent in my first order. I am on the east coast and was able to select USPS two day service to save on shipping cost. I hope all goes well. I thought I could buy locally but could not.

    thanks Donna

    I finally got my order to go through. I plan on making pillows for my revamped bed. I am looking forward to getting my order.

    Approximately how long does it take your product to be delivered?

      Good morning,
      Thank you for ordering! I will email you the tracking information as soon as your shipping label is printed. I have used my buckwheat hull pillow for over 6 years and can’t sleep without one.

    Hi BWH,

    Would you please say something about the air-vacuuming and gravity-cleaning process you use for your hulls?
    I’m curious because I heard somewhere a recommendation to buy hulls that are roasted to ensure optimal cleanliness. But, I will add that I received my 18lb sack of hulls and the quality seems just fine, quite clean!
    Thank you

      Hello! Our hulls are cleaned by a method which involves heat and spinning. They are tumbled in a cleaning unit similar to a large, industrial dryer. As the hulls are spun and heated any extra fiber is pulled away. The grower who supplies us with the products has indicated that this cleaning process for the hulls is done in three stages to ensure the highest quality. Thanks for the inquiry!
