Prairie sugar, also known as sorghum, was made over 150 years ago as a sweetener for farmers and their families. Visitors can help with the process of turning sorghum into sweet, syrupy molasses. Then explore the sugar beet crop in the Farm Lab fields and discover how sugar beets are processed into granulated sugar today.

Visitors can also help make and sample a variety of sweets made from different types of sweeteners in the historic kitchen and Learning Kitchen.
