Every Fall the sweet smell of sorghum syrup fills the air in the Overton County community of Muddy Pond. It's coming from the Guenthaler family farm. They grow sorghum cane and turn it into a tasty treat using very traditional methods. Tressa Bush visited the mill to get a first hand look at how its done.
Sorghum is made every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday in September and October 7am-4pm; Store is open Mon-Sat 8am-5pm.
