Ospel – Under the theme ‘From Farmer to Baker’, the millers of the Korenbloem plant in Ospel organize the Ospelse Molendagen for the seventh time.
You are invited to come enjoy the wonderful smell of grinding grain. Also, on this special day (Sunday), the machines used by the farmers for sowing and threshing are on display. Through this, the entire process from the farmer’s grain to grinding at the mill is visualized. Like old tractors and a combine harvester.
Small agricultural implements used by the farmer on the farm and land are also on display. These machines were used in the past when growing grain and have been fully restored.
On Sundays, the owners themselves narrate the working of these machines and the historical story of the farmers of that time. And of course there is coffee with waffles. Kids have a bouncy castle and a grab bag.
There is an exhibition of photographs by photographer Wim Werdenchat from Meijer. The photographs in this exhibition give a general idea of his works, such as: atmospheric photographs from Peel, New Zealand and Lake Victoria (Kenya), especially in the morning around sunrise, portraits of people and animals, macro photographs of insects and other beauties from nature, occasional buildings, etc.
The mill and mill shop will be open and operational on Saturday, August 20, but there will be no further activities.
These days the shop at the bottom of the mill is open and you can buy a variety of flours, including pancake mix made from different grains milled at the mill, Duspelsbrütmix, Beetstex and Wilkestekers Multigrain. Also spelled, rye and wheat flour and regional products.
