Later on, it became a flour mill again and finally specialized in animal feed. Today, it is open to you for a plunge into the past and traditions, where young and old are sure to marvel. Children will be able to touch, test and put themselves in the shoes of a miller during a visit.

    For a unique experience, you will witness the live production of electricity in 110 volts thanks to a dynamo of 1908. 2 turbines are also dedicated to the production of renewable energy, clean (electricity).
