Welcome to Muddy Pond Sorghum Mill. Our Mill is operated by the Guenther family and is located midway between Nashville and Knoxville in the hills of Tennessee. Come visit us during September and October and watch us make sorghum syrup. The sorghum mill is in operation beginning the Saturday before Labor Day, on Labor Day, then we skip the next day which is Tuesday. Then we make sorghum every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday until the end of October.
Our sorghum is 100% pure sorghum with no additives made from our own sorghum cane that we plant each year. The nutritional facts are listed on the Shop Online page. (We are updating the nutritional label and will add it back to this page soon.) We are long time members of the National Sweet Sorghum Producers and Processors Association (NSSPPA). You can check out their website at www.nssppa.org.
Muddy Pond Sorghum has won many awards and honors. We have won 1st or placed in the top 10 of the NSSPPA sorghum syrup contest most every year. We were named the 2012 Made in America - American Treasures Award Winner. Muddy Pond Sorghum's Mark and Sherry Guenther are Fellows in the Sourthern Foodways Alliance Fellowship of Southern Farmers, Artisans, and Chefs.
Muddy Pond Variety Store is owned by John and Emma Guenther and is open year round, closed Sundays. The store is located across the road from the sorghum mill. The Variety Store carries bulk foods, hardware, collectible items, enamel bakeware, stainless steel, home baked goods and of course Muddy Pond Sorghum.

Mark and Sherry Guenther also make sorghum at various festivals, using horses or mules on a horse drawn mill and boiling down the sorghum juice to sorghum syrup on site at the festival. We have sorghum and sorghum baked goods for sell at the festivals. Click on Festivals above to get locations and dates of the shows.
