We went on a rainy Tuesday morning. We loved the windmill tour. It was well worth the admission price. The tour was very interesting and the tour guide was very informative. We were disappointed they were sold out of flour, but purchased corn meal.

First of all...I love the fact they are dog friendly. Dogs aren’t allowed in the mill or stores but welcomed in the gardens. My husband and I took turns doing the windmill tour while the other watched the dogs. It worked out just fine. The...More

If you've never seen a windmill up close I would recommend this place. They provide the history and a nice walking tour inside a working windmill which was relocated here from the Netherlands. The grounds are very pretty with manicured lawns and many flowers. Wear...More

I don't remember seeing anything on the sign that says that and there is nothing on the website. I'd give them a call since you are local.
