Making Sugar Cane Syrup

Throughout the year, sugar cane is grown on the museum grounds. When it is time for harvest, the cane is cut by hand and pressed. The resulting liquid is poured into our kettle where it boils for several hours until it becomes a thicker consistency. To learn more about the sugar cane syrup process, watch our video below!

Join us for Fall Farm Day, the second Saturday of December, for a live Cane Syrup demonstration. Afterwards, cane syrup can be purchased from the Tallahassee Museum store.
