Sweet September Sorghum

What is Sorghum you ask? Unless you were raised in the South, you may not have any idea what it is!

Sorghum is a grain (cereal) that grows tall like corn, and it is used for a lot more than just sweetening. In the United States, sorghum is used as livestock feed and turned into ethanol. It’s a popular crop to grow within the drier regions of the States because it is drought resistant. This quality has also made it a popular crop in Africa. Want to learn more about this fancy little grain?  Join in the fun at the  Sauer-Beckmann Living History farm to see how this valuable sweetener was grown and processed in the early 1900’s.
