The Mislinjska valley, is a territory rich with rivers and streams, and boasts a rich tradition of mills. Even before WWII, there were operating about 250 water-powered facilities (mills, saws, oil mills, blacksmiths, and power plants). The buildings were slowly decaying, and many of them left no traces. Only the elderly still remember the old mills and saws, and fields of buckwheat, rye, wheat and corn. Today, milling crafts in our town are almost forgotten; however, when we visit the Herčeva saw and mill, we can almost hear the miller milling and singing an old miller song. In addition to grinding wheat and operating the saw, organizers present the old farm work of husking the corn every year at the Herčeva saw and mill, which has become quite a tradition.
