The Josephine Mill Museum is dedicated to preserve the methods and equipment used it earlier years to grind flour.

Visitors will be able to see an exhibition of stone milling and an exhibition of recovered artefacts.

Examples include a Cornish steam boiler recovered from the banks of the Liesbeeck River and French Burr stones from the Marne Valley in northern France.
These stones are not cut from one piece, but are built up from sections of quartz, cemented together with plaster, dressed with a pattern to assist with the grinding, and bound with iron bands.

The Mill Shop sells stone ground flour, only available on the premises, freshly baked breads, homemade jams and condiments, baking utensils, and a variety of books and publications.
