Goss Farms Sorghum
Kenneth Goss, born in 1954, was raised in Henagar, Alabama. He grew up hunting, fishing, and farming. Goss’s parents, L.D. and Willodean Goss cooked sorghum syrup every year. The Goss family also cooked batches of sorghum for people in their community. Kenneth and his brother, Larry, helped their parents harvest and cook sorghum.
After he married Renee Goss, Kenneth continued to help his parents, L.D. and Willodean Goss cook sorghum. Along with his wife, brother, and extended family, Kenneth Goss cooks sorghum for the public and sells pint and quart jars of sorghum to community members who stop by.
