In continual operation since 1797, The Birkett Mills is one of the world's largest manufacturers of Buckwheat products and serves as America's buckwheat capital.

On September 27, 1987, The Birkett Mills set Guinness World Record for the world's largest buckwheat pancake that was cooked on its 28-foot metal pancake griddle. The batter was mixed in a cement mixer and a crane was used to flip the pancake, which was cooked over a bed of hot coals. The pancake griddle is now displayed on the side of The Birkett Mills' building in downtown Penn Yan.
