Our Story

windmill story

At the north west corner of Burtch and Mount Pleasant Road in the village of Mount Pleasant a vacant lot was up for sale. The lot was for sale by the county of Brant who had acquired the land and proceeded to zone it commercial with the vision that the right kind of enterprise would promote healthy growth in the community. On a drive by occasion Henry Heikoop Sr. became aware of the opportunity and long story short, 3 years later on May 4, 2005, the Windmill Country Market opened for its first day of business.

We, as members of the Heikoop family, have enjoyed the village context as it has afforded an excellent opportunity to do business on a personal level and make friends along the way! Many who have visited our store have commented on how they have enjoyed the warm and friendly atmosphere. Wishing to maintain such an environment, we have been careful in building a team that will carry on the vision of making sure those who visit will have a positive experience!

We welcome you to experience The Windmill Country Market!
