Rideļi Mill

In the beginning of World War One, the mill was burned down, but after the 1920 Land Reform, when it became the property of the Kambali family, its operation was resumed. There are premises for milling rye flour, grits and pearl-barley.

The mill resumed its operation for the second time under management of the Kambali family in 1992. Two years later, they started grinding fine flour and making farina and, in 1996m made pearl barley and grits. The mill is no longer used for processing large amounts of grain, but its masters always gladly demonstrate how different grindings appear from milling grains.

During an excursion at the mill, visitors can see the flour grinding process and then try pancakes made of freshly ground flour at the Cope Café, which is right across the road. Long ago, when the mill was first built, the millpond of Rideļi also appeared.

There are recreation places set up around the mill for fishermen and for organising small events . If you like the location, you can arrange a picnic here any time or rent a boat.
