In Hellenurme on the bank of the Elva River mill-pond the 135 year old watermill built by the Middendorff family stands in the manor ensemble.
Inside the mill you can find machines and furniture of the 1930s.
On the four floors of the mill you can see, touch, feel and taste the way from grain to flour. There is an old Estonian saying which is still true;
Ärä nakka veskit enne kitmä, kui ei tiia määndse jahu tä tiip.
