BLUE CREEK DAIRY FARM

Farming: Windmill Award

Windmill wins prize at Spokane Interstate Fair!
2012 SPOKANE COUNTY FAIR 005
Hugh Grim displayed the 1925 Aermotor windmill at the fair and had it rigged to pump water from a stock tank into a bucket that would dump and recirculate the water. It was a big hit with the kids! It pumped up to about 100 gallons an hour during the windiest day, but is rated for 78 gallons per hour. We plan to have a large cistern on our farm once we install the windmill in 2013. Just the topmost part of the tower is on display, once on our farm it will be twice as tall! It also got a blue ribbon! Thanks Hugh!
