It’s Prairie Sugar Weekend at Kelley Farm, Saturday and Sunday (24th and 25th). A great event for the whole family. You can step back in time at a place, that makes learning fun and interactive.
Join the Kelley farmhands as they make prairie sugar, also known as sorghum molasses. Help strip the leaves off the sorghum canes, press the canes through a horse-powered press to extract the juice and stir the juice as it boils down to make a sweet, syrupy molasses. Then, enjoy a sweet treat of molasses confections such as gingerbread and molasses candy.CostIncluded with site admission of $9 adults, $7 seniors and college students, $6 ages 5-17, free age 4 and under and MNHS members
