Sorghum Farm
Description: Reverse reads: “Making sorghum.” This photo shows horses acting as the power source on a sorghum mill. The horses walked in a circle to grind the cane. Juice was then collected in metal "milk" cans, and taken home to be cooked into sweet sorghum, also known as sorghum molasses. Historically, only a limited number of farmers grew sorghum in Ohio, but most produced sorghum for personal use or for profit. View on Ohio Memory.
