Renovations: what’s done and what still needs to be done

Done…

Thanks to the funding we received from the Flemish government, the King Boudewijn Foundation and new members, we have already managed to get quite a lot done:

  • The Midget Marvel Maxima Roller is up and running once again! We will be able to mill our first bags of flour very soon.
  • Renovating the Midget Roller included a new 3-phase electrics system, electric motors, replacement drive belts, elevators, sieves and the cleaning of all the machine’s components.
  • We have rebuilt the grain cleaner, relaid most of the floor on 4th level and installed an electric winch up to the 4th floor
  • Rentokil carried out woodworm treatment

 

 

 

 

 

 

… but there is still a lot to do

  • we will need to finish the electrics and safety systems
  • both the interior and exterior walls need stabilizing and renovating
  • in order to diversify the range of products the mill offers, we will be looking to acquire 2 new mill stones – these will allow us to produce whole meal flour, a must for a ‘healthy food’ mill such as ours. The old stones can no longer be used for producing flour for consumption.

Once the mill is completely up and running and producing flour, the next big project will be to renovate the adjoining building to develop the multi-purpose room that will be made available to neighbours and locals to host events, training, parties, etc.Flietermolen

Invest and help us build the Flietermolen story

  • Flietermolen aims to innovate, producing healthy bio food, with no sprays or additives.
  • As a multi-stakeholder cooperative, our goal is to bring together key players from the local social economy, such as farmers, millers, bakers, bio shops, customers and neighbours.
  • The renovations carried out so far have cost 22.000€. To get the mill fully up and running, we need a further 20.000€ of funds.

Invest now in Flietermolen! Help us to raise the extra capital needed (20.000€) so that we can start production as soon as possible!

Perspectives

From inside …

On 10/03 we held a very informative and constructive perspectives session with several local actors – we also tasted some great varieties of bread made from local flour.
