Windmills have been around for a long time in human history. They are one of the first man-made methods of power generation. Windmill power was used for a number of functions, such as pumping water, grinding grain, sawmilling of timber, and processing of commodities. Many small windmills are still in use on farms today for water pumping, stock watering, and farmhouse needs. Our windmill out front serves as not only a recognizable landscape feature when you round that curve on Highway 15, but also as a symbol of representation of all the working farmers that continue to devote their living to sowing the earth, harvesting crops, and raising cattle.
