History of Cornmill 'Nooit Gedagt'

From way back cornmill Nooit Gedagt has been standing on the town rampart of the fortified city Woudrichem, the same place where already a mill stood in 1662. Last known predecessor of cornmill Nooit Gedagt was equipped with a total brick octagonic structure since 1862, replacing a smock mill on stone base. This mill was destroyed on the 21st of April 1945 durig the war. The foundation 'Reconstructing cornmill Nooit Gedagt' was founded by notarial act in 1984 with the purpose of rebuilding the devastated mill (1945). After years of preparation and gathering the proper financial resources a start could be made with the build of the new mill (the present mill) on May the 5th 1990. The construction was supervised by the firm Straver, Almkerk the Netherlands. Amid great public interest the cap with windshaft and stocks were put in it's place on the 28th of April 1995 ; a crowning glory for the foundation. The mill was completed and ready for grinding purposes. The official opening took place on May the 31st 1996 and the mill is uptil now the only mill in the Netherlands of the type octaganic brick windmill with reefing-stage.

The finest flour you get from the mill


Nowadays the bread(baking)machine is a product that is present in most of the Dutch households. Which means that most people want a product that contains quality and with not that much artificial contents hence, they prefer buying their flour in all different sorts at the mill. Ofcourse there are strict regulations in this area which the HACCP (Hygienic Code) controls.
