The Mill Walk offers an overview of the parallel development of the farming of grains and early civilisations, to milling and baking bread today. The on-site exhibition at La Motte is expanded here online, and includes topics of historical milling processes, implements and structures like the hand mill collection and the La Motte watermill, to the philosophy of the La Motte Bakery and matters like nutrition and sustainability.
