Currently the windmill is capable of grounding around 600 to 800 kgs in roughly eight hours under favorable weather conditions, i.e. a strong enough wind to turn the sails. In the coming years a significant amount of wheat will be produced in order to fully take advantage of the milling capacity of the windmill. This year a small amount, roughly five tons of wheat, has been harvested and will be used to make some flour, and with that some biscuits and other products which will be made available for purchase. The windmill is open for use by other farmers if they wish to grind their wheat in the traditional way. The ground level of the mill has been revamped in order to look like the original room used by the miller to rest. The intermediate floor is a storage facility where the wheat anδ the flour can be kept while on the top floor lies the whole mechanism (production facility) of the windmill.
The windmill is open to the public from 09:00 am to 17:00 pm for the moment. The entrance fee amounts to 2.5 eur.
