Unfortunately I think the buckwheat flour is processed and not raw. I am sure you could source it online if you looked though. Do you have a Health food store close by? They might carry it.

Assuming you tried a Health Food Store, is there s Seed place in your area? You can find Seeds you need at some Seed and Feed stores, they always feed the Animals the BEST Food. Yes there's everything on line and on this Site. Check out what Alissa has in her Store at the left of this page.

Not all buckwheat is processed/heat treated. I get my buckwheat milled by a local miller into flour, and I know it's still a raw ingredient as the stones don't heat that stuff up. And the berries I use to mill are still able to be sprouted before the milling.

whoa, i would be careful getting stuff from an animal feed store....i would ask alot of questions and find out how it is stored, if its been treated, etc, and i would absolutely make sure its organic. even so, i dont think grains and seeds intended for animals are always kept under the stricter cleanliness conditions desired for food meant for human consumption. I would also be wary that it could have had things added to it or been treated with fungicides, etc.often seeds meant to be planted in the ground are soaked or coated in pesticides/etc before they are sold to you. if it is an organic seeds store though, you might have a better chance, but i would be careful and ask alot of questions.
