We, the owners of Rožmalas, are farmers at heart and want to show our visitors how agriculture has developed over the centuries, from ancient times up to modern day technology. We have created a wonderful exhibition in the Ribbes windmill – ‘The Path of the Grain’. We appreciate the heritage our ancestors left us – the Ribbes windmill– which is not just ours but a part of the community and a source of pride for the region, helping to revive the landscape of the Bauska region.
The design of the windmill with its equipment and details have been developed and tested over centuries. This complex building is a monument to our ancestors heritage and work ethic.
