Hughes Sorghum Syrup Mill

Sorghum’s in the Air at Hughes Sorghum Syrup Mill

Since 1954, Olin Hughes and his family have been growing sorghum and boiling the juice into some of the sweetest-tasting syrup around. In North Georgia, nothing is better than homemade biscuits slathered with hot sorghum syrup (this natural sweetener is also the perfect addition to gingerbread and oatmeal cookies). The process starts with fall cane-cutting. The cane is run through a masher and then filtered into a steaming vat, where it’s cooked off until it becomes sweet golden syrup. The Hughes family welcomes visitors to the syrup mill during the fall processing season — just follow your nose to the sweet, steamy smell of sorghum in the air!

  1. I would like to bring the senior citizens from Liberty Hill Baptist Church, Eastanollee, GA, to see your syrup mill in operation. When will it be the best time to do this? I came last to buy syrup and candy after you had completed making the syrup.

    Thank you in advance.
