The millers at work

The Traanroeier is still grinding grain. This afternoon, the millers are at work in the centuries-old mill. They lubricate the gears, place the vanes in the wind and let the windmill do the heavy work. With wind energy, the millstones are driven and the heavy bags of wheat and flour are hoisted. It’s such an ingenious technique, three centuries old! The millers like to talk about their exceptional craft.
