Goss Farms Sorghum
Larry Goss, born in 1947, was raised in Henagar, Alabama. His parents, L.D. and Willodean Goss cooked sorghum each fall. Growing up, Larry was responsible for grinding the cane. After he was finished, he would watch his father boil the freshly squeezed sorghum juice into a thick syrup. Noting his interest, his father, L.D. Goss taught him how to cook sorghum.
As his parents advanced in age, Larry Goss took over at the sorghum pan. Along with his sister-in-law Renee, Larry Goss cooks much of the sorghum syrup the Gosses grow.
