View into the bakery and mill
Since about three years we are allowed to supply the bakery Göttinger GmbH in A-3812 Groß Siegharts with organic wheat flour.
On 25. April 2023 there was for the first time a factory tour in the bakery to see the production processes.
For interested people there was a guided tour in our mill afterwards.
We were very pleased about this opportunity and would like thank Mr. Göttinger for the good cooperation.

Our hydroelectric power
Electricity from small hydropower and photovoltaics in the wood quarter is described by Mr. Andreas Pasielak, speaker of small hydroelectric power “Thayatal”, in his article in the current small hydropower magazine. The hydropower plant of our mill is also mentioned here, fortunately.
Until 2015 we operated a small hydroelectric power station (Francis turbine) with a fish ladder, which covered about 30% of our electricity needs. In 2014, we decided to build a new hydropower plant. This double-regulated Kaplan turbine was put into operation in spring of 2017 and has three times the power output when the water level in the river Thaya is sufficient. We also produce electricity by means of photovoltaics, this plant is to be expanded continuously.
