our Windmill and Dutch roots
We’re extremely proud of our Windmill because it’s where everything started. It symbolises our Dutch roots and heritage.
Built in 1867, the original windmill – named the Wielinga-Stam – is located in the small northern town of Joure, near the sea where the soil was and still is ideal for growing high-quality potatoes.
The Wielinga-Stam milled the potatoes which were processed into the potato starch we have now come to know and love as Windmill.
