The Jacobus windmill
Unfortunately the original mill burnt down in 1893, after which the current Jacobus mill was built. This round brick gristmill consists of a circular brick structure and a cap. With a 'sweep’ of 28 metres, it is the second largest in the province of Noord Brabant.
De Jacobushoeve is a meeting place created by Fons van der Laan. He was conscious that people nowadays have too little opportunity to spend time together in a relaxed way. It’s called ‘buurten’ (neighbouring) in the Kempen.

Fons also thought that too much stuff (household goods, books, clothing) was being thrown away. So he found volunteers who were willing to help him, and a usable farm. De Jacobushoeve became a reality, with a reuse shop, a garden, workshops and world shop.
