MILLING AS THE WATER FLOWS AND THE WIND BLOWS
A learning, feeling, listening, grooving, and tasting extravaganza, experienced to the rhythm of the mills at a site that’s simply one-of-a-kind! The Moulins de l’Isle-aux-Coudres site, which includes a water mill (1825), a windmill (1836), and the miller’s house, is open to the public. As in the past, the miller will grind the grain, demonstrating wheat, buckwheat, or rye milling at the water mill. You’ll come to understand the workings of these two architectural wonders, so necessary for survival in an island environment. In addition to exhibition rooms, the reception building also features a souvenir shop where authentic stone wheel freshly ground flour can be purchased. Take advantage of your visit to enjoy a family picnic.
