Here, the expression "you enter it as if in a mill" has its place. At the Huilerie du Moulin de l'île in Donzy, the stone millstone has been activated for more than 150 years by the river Nohain, to produce high quality artisanal oils. As soon as you walk through the door, the smell of crushed nuts under the millstone comes up to your nose, to immerse you in the atmosphere. Mr. Coudray, the owner, explains to us the functioning of the stone millstone of Donzy, activated by a hydraulic turbine installed on the Nohain
After being crushed for 30 minutes under the millstone, the "paste" of the walnuts or hazelnuts is then heated and pressed to reveal all its secrets in a smooth and tasty oil. And there, only one idea crosses your mind, taste this precious nectar. Hum, what a delight! So, if you don't know this place yet, you just have to go and visit it and learn everything about the making of oils!
