We used to hull wheat for a while, what we did was simple.

Put it between two baking trays and rub them together, when you do that it breaks the hull off the wheat and then you only have to sort the hulls from the grain to finish the process, try using the wind, a small breeze should do.

Toss the wheat into the air and the chaff/husks should blow away leaving you with wheat kernels.

You just need to know what the process is called.

In this case Threshing and winnowing

I Know it Works !

Historically it worked 888 BC.

You should be able to make a working differential chaff separator out of Knex or a better one out of Lego.

lay down a sheet or light blanket and beat the buckwheat on it then lift the edges of the sheet and bounce it in the wind to de hull it called winnoning

Sounds like a quick google search will give you the info your looking for in much better detail then we can put here.
