This spring we plan to acquire and put into operation a flour mill. Following the example of Krisnuv Dvur, who have been experienced millers for many years, we have opted for the Austrian brand "Osttiroler Getreidemühlen", who are unique suppliers of mills with grinding gears made of natural stone. Natural stone is the heart of the mill and ensures a quality flour full of nutrients (unlike industrial grinding units made of metal or artificial stone).
To start with, we have chosen the 400 MSM, which is a mill whose stones are 400mm in diameter and allow for the grinding of 30 - 40 kg of flour per hour. The mill will also include a classifier, which will allow us to easily sort the milled flour from semolina to smooth. The classifier alone is almost half of the total price.
This is one of the first steps towards self-sufficiency in grain. Until now, we have mainly used flour from Kršnov Dvor. We have also grown our own grain, but so far we have only used a small mill. This move will help us take our milling to the next level.
In the next few years (after we have completed the most important construction operations) we would like to convert the mill into an oxen-powered mill.
