Jar or Jug, we are proud to feature Townsend’s sorghum, made at a sorghum mill in Jeffersonville, about 10 miles from Laura’s Mercantile at Mt. Folly “as the crow flies.” Sorghum is the original mountain sweetener, high in potassium, iron, phosphorous and other minerals.
Danny Townsend, our neighbor, is the fifth generation of Townsends to make sorghum. And it is the best there is, having been crowned National Champion by the members of the National Sweet Sorghum Producers and Processors Association.
Sorghum goes with our heritage cornbread, like a pocket on a shirt.
Next year, we want to make sorghum rum at WildCat Willy’s Distillery. But for now, try this with cornbread.
