The Birkett Mills

The Birkett Mills

"Fancy Quality Buckwheat and Wheat Products" (this quote is on the side of the building)

163 Main Street, Penn Yan, NY


"Finger Lakes region for New York since 1797. It's one of the largest buckwheat manufacturers in the world, and also is a New York Grown & Certified soft red wheat flour manufacturer... "

"locally-owned small business, just under 50 employees. "

"In 1823, the mill in Penn Yan, NY burned down; today's mill has been in use since 1824."

"On September 27, 1987, the company made history by setting a Guinness Book of World Record for the largest pancake ever made at the Annual Buckwheat Harvest Festival ..."

Hey there, we are always looking for local mills when in whichever state we might be visiting. What makes it way cool is that it is still in working condition and folks are able to support a "local small business" ...they do have a website and if you so desire to do so, check that website out to see what they are selling today. We loved checking out "Penn Yan", New York. Such a great area. The details, the flowers, the amazing views, the quiet small-town feel. It's there, go on ...check it out!!! Thank you for stopping by today. Hope you are well. Take Care. Beth ( ;

Re: hubby's hearing aids, we just went to a local hearing centre. He's been there before having his hearing tested. It was time!
