Making Molasses at North River Farms
It has been a busy autumn at North River Farms. Our molasses facility is open, and we were thankful that Jason’s grandfather and grandmother were able to be with us as we made the first batch of molasses. They are the inspiration behind our expansion into molasses; we have the original equipment that they used in making their own molasses, and their experience and expertise has been invaluable as we’ve begun this venture.
If you’d like to learn more about how we operate our equipment, check out this great article from the Blue Ridge Times. Many thanks to them for helping us spread the word about our old-timey molasses!
