For Holland windmills were the cornerstone of the economy in the 18th and 19th century. Not only did the windmills provide ways to grind grain but they also pumped water for land drainage.

Every village had his own cornerstones and with the help of the wind it took care of the village by supplying grinded grains to make bread and in other cases made sure the rural land was dry, so that farmers could let their cattle graze on the land to provide meat, milk and cheese. In 1780 one of these cornerstones, the windmill “Den Vergulden Engel” was build and the family Hendriks were the proud owners of the Mill.

But unfortunately wind is not 100% reliable and the grandson of miller Hendriks had to be creative to take care of their village in periods with less wind.

After some less fortunate years with hunger among the people, Mr. Hendriks came up with a way to evenly spread the grain among the people. He stored the grain for times of trouble. And in times of overproduction he started trading his goods across the country to earn money, so he could always buy food for the family and villagers elsewhere in times of less wind.

In 1845 the Den Vergulden Engel Handels Mij (Maatschappij) was founded. And the trading of grain became the core business of the company. By the time bakeries became the first stop for bread consumption it supplied bakeries across Holland and Belgium. Later in the 20th century the company supplied retailers across Europe, although the grain trading is no part of the business anymore, today the company is a worldwide trading house with the name and the values of a miller but with 21st century ambitions. I suppose eventually I buy research paper online might have achieved these results without a blog plan, but I achieved them much more quickly with the plan.
