• What is the Interantional Windmillers’ Trade Fair?

Folks travel from all over the United States and beyond to attend this trade fair. ¬†“The history and people behind these water pumping structures are almost as iconic as the windmill itself. ¬†Windmillers, dealers, restorers, collectors and enthusiasts [come] from across the country,” Shelby Haag/Midwest Producer.

In explaining the trade fair Chuck Jones, 2013 lead organizer says, “some bring their junk iron to sell, some come to buy the junk iron. ¬†Others come to see all the different kinds of windmills and to learn more about them.”
