Try moving the flour grinder

Kvernsteinsparken

In the past, grains were the most important part of the diet. Before one could start making bread, the grain had to be ground and one had to have a millstone. We can rightly say that the millstones from Hyllestad were the stones of life!

Self-ground grain to flour.

Try grinding your own grain and making your own millstone bread. Are you strong enough to move the grinder? It is heavy work and you have to grind for a long time to get enough flour for a piece of bread. The activity is suitable for everyone.
