Helmswoman

There was a time Josien Mooibroek (45 years old; married to Raoul Schyns) wanted to be an ocean-going helmswoman. The ocean-going part was not to be, but she definitely became a helmswomen, responsible for quality control in the mill. For ten years, Josien was at the wheel of the successful “Commandeur Inn” that was situated next to the Commandeursmolen, before joining the mill team. “We work hard here, with a fair dose of ‘mill fun’ from time to time.” She is still astonished that that “a single grain of seed” can be turned into so many different kinds of flour, each with its own taste, colour, scent and structure, and suitable to so many different finished products.
