Here at Southern Cross Farm and Sugar Mill,
we try to carry on some traditions that have almost
disappeared in our area of the South. Beth and I owe many
thanks to my Dad and Mom and my friend Owen Wingate. They
have helped us to learn and pass on skills and knowledge
that have all but been forgotten.
have a late 1800's Hench and Dromgold sawmill, an early
1800's Blacksmith Shop, a 48" water powered
gristmill, (that we're working on now), and my true love,
the Sugarcane Syrup operation. Old friends and new turn
out in November for our Cane Grinding, Syrup Making, and
Candy Pulling party.
We have put together a series of pictures of
our cane mills and related equipment. We hope to add more
images as time allows. We hope you enjoy the presentation
