WHOA... if I wasn't already sold on queen rearing/orchard/seed production as my agricultural triple threat business plan, that quote would have done it for me.

I'll leave the milling of those silly seed shapes to someone else. I'm interested in how I can clean organic seed for market. I wish you would private message me some time with how may man hours to pounds of seeds you get. I would probably be looking at using some kind of Allis Chalmers seed cleaner... and maybe a horse drawn bundler, like for grains. Anyway... I don't know of any horse powered organic buckwheat seed producers out there. So I guess I'm on my own, to a far off corner of the market!
