The Mazurian Budry Commune is a perfect place for cycling tours, and the words “peace and quiet” could easily be its other name. What else is it famous for?
In a few words, it is characterised by the mayor Józef Markiewicz – the commune has clean air and an ecological economy.
But the commune is also famous for the fact that memories of the local mill, in which grain from the surrounding fields was ground, are still alive.
– The last user of the mill in Budry was the Commune Cooperative Self-Help Cooperative (Gminna Spółdzielnia Samopomoc Chłopska) from Węgorzewo, here the farmers brought grain, which was milled for our needs, as well as those of the bakeries operating in our area,” adds Józef Markiewicz, Head of Budry Commune.
Since the 1980s, the mill had been waiting for a second life and the commune for an opportunity to raise funds for its revitalisation. Thanks to the commitment of the local authorities, this has finally happened.
– “At the moment, EU funds have appeared, which can be used to renovate the mill and leave it to our grandchildren, great-grandchildren, so that they can see what flour production used to be like, and besides, there are historical machines here” – explains the mayor.
