Owner Richard Wittgreve wasn’t able to find sorghum syrup to purchase so he decided to make his own!
Wittgreve’s 20 acres of cane-like grass in Elkhart Lake, WI now produces 1300-1400 gallons of sorghum syrup annually.
What is sorghum syrup? Sorghum syrup is a natural sweetener created from juice squeezed from the stalks of a special variety of sweet sorghum. It has a rich, dark color and consistency similar to molasses but with a milder taste. Not only is sorghum syrup high in antioxidants and potassium, it has lower fructose levels than other sweeteners.
