Eendracht Maakt Macht 2

In 1952 the mill underwent a major refurbishment. About eight years later, the mill became redundant due to more modern milling methods and shut operations. Fearing that the lack of use would lead to accelerated decay, the municipality of Horst decided in 1976 to take over the mill. A bakery was added at the rear of the mill. Since 1994, the management of the mill is in the hands of the Molen Eendracht Maakt Macht foundation, volunteer millers who run the mill once a week.

ça doit sentir bon le blé.
That is nicely shot.
I really like this composition, Ayush!
Très sympa la photo de ses sacs... de farine j'imagine.
Bonne journée Ayush

That is a very happy story Ayush and a joy to know that the mill is still working.
I like that story, very much the same has happened to a lot of our windmills over here that are open and run by enthusiasts.
Did you sample what the bakery produced?

what a fine image

love, love
I love these sacks of grain/flour, Ayush. It would be fun to start "collecting" them around The Netherlands because they're all unique to the windmill. smile

I love the logo on the bags. That is a lot of flower and good for them that they have volunteer millers to keep the mill running.
