Buckwheat Seed - Buckwheat is a versatile crop that produces an abundance of flowers and seed in just 70-80 days. The seeds hold onto the stalk well after ripening, making it appealing to wildlife. Buckwheat is also a favorite among honey bees and produces an abundance of flowers quickly, making it an ideal crop for beekeepers. It grows well in most any type of soil, including poor, fertile, peat, sand, clay, or loam. While it's not very shade tolerant, it can germinate and grow at temperatures as low as 45 degrees F, with optimal growth occurring at or above 55 degrees Fahrenheit.
Buckwheat has a low water requirement and does not do well in wet soils. It's a great addition to spring and summer food plots for quail, doves, turkey, ducks, and deer, and also serves as a great cover crop for gardens. Its rapid growth makes it an excellent choice for smothering weeds during the warm season. Buckwheat flowers are attractive to bees and beneficial predatory insects and flower bugs.
Mancan Variety Buckwheat is most commonly grown in the Southeastern United States. It's known for its vigorous growth habit, as well as larger seeds, stems, and leaves. The seeds are large, dark-colored, with triangular-shaped sides.

At Standish Milling, we're committed to delivering your products in a timely and cost-effective manner. Here's some information to help you understand our shipping costs.
UPS Ground Shipping
We primarily use UPS Ground for our shipping. The cost of shipping is calculated based on the weight of your order and your location. UPS Ground offers reliable, cost-effective delivery for packages under 150 lbs.
You can estimate your shipping costs by adding items to your cart and entering your shipping address. Our system will automatically calculate the shipping costs before you proceed to checkout.
LTL (Less Than Truckload) Shipping
For larger orders over 150 lbs, we use Less Than Truckload (LTL) shipping. LTL shipping is a cost-effective way to ship large orders by combining shipments from multiple customers.
Here's how it works:
You get a quote: When you add items to your cart that total more than 150 lbs, our system will provide an LTL shipping quote. This quote is based on the total weight of your order and your shipping address.
Your order is shipped: Once your order is ready, we send it to the shipping carrier who combines it with other shipments going in the same direction. This process allows us to save on shipping costs and pass those savings onto you.
Your order is delivered: The carrier will deliver your order to your specified address. Keep in mind that delivery times for LTL shipments may be longer than UPS Ground shipments due to the consolidation process.
Shipping costs can be complex, but we're here to help. If you have any questions or need further clarification, please don't hesitate to contact us.
