Mill cleaning

Every year - our mill is cleaned. Therefore, the museum will be closed from 10 - 17 May 2021. Why is a mill cleaning so important?

Pests such as the rice flour beetle eat their share of the flour and can leave unappetizing traces.
They find an excellent biotope in the wooden pipes and boxes of the mill.
For this reason, to this day, the mill is cleaned at regular intervals to get rid of insects and their eggs.
There are various strategies for this, for example by ventilating the mill with hot air for several days, as is customary in our country.
