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 was about to order buckwheat hull but the shipping fee is double the price of your product.is there any alternative shipping that is more affordable?

    • Buckwheat1 says:

      Good morning Daisy,
      Unfortunately, shipping fees have increased significantly over the last several years. We are located on the East Coast (NC) and the shipping of our product is based on weight as well as the size of the box. Typically, any shipments to the West Coast are considerably higher. We have kept our product costs the same in hopes of off setting the increased rates of shipping.
      Thank you for your interest.

    I am trying to order buckwheat hull to be shipped to Canada Alberta and it will not let me put in my province.

    • Buckwheat1 says:

      Hello Wendy. I am sorry, but we are no longer shipping our product to Canada.

Our Individuals are Intellectual/Developmental Delayed and make all kinds of all natural beauty and household cleaning products. It is great to see so many IDD Individuals getting honest rewarding work. Our company is called Sweet Beginnings and we are though Strive in Grand Junction Colorado.

    My order number is #14972 and it was supposed to be delivered yesterday.
    Even though we are less than 100 miles apart, it was sent to Alabama.
    “February 1, 2016 , 6:05 pm Departed USPS Facility MONTGOMERY, AL 36119”
    Nothing further has happened since then.
    I was wondering if you could check into it for me.

    • Buckwheat1 says:

      Good afternoon. I was unable to get much information regarding the shipment. I spoke with a USPS employee at the Alabama PO that handled the package. He indicated that the route would be normal delivery from Raleigh to your address in TN, though it seems to me that it is considerably out of the way. I will continue to monitor the shipment. It is most definitely past the expected delivery date of 02/01. My apologies, but unfortunately once the package has left our facility it is out of our hands. If you decide to refuse delivery, we will refund your account for the price of the product. Thank you. Lynn

        I’ll just wait on it. Usually the Post Office is the best method of shipping around here. I guess they can’t be fast all the time. 😀
        Thank you for looking into it for me.
