Sugar Cane Gardens

I believe Sugar Cane is the most miraculous substance on earth. It is truly nature’s candy. It takes almost zero processing to harvest and enjoy sugar cane.

At its simplest, you can cut down a stalk, cut it into small pieces and enjoy. All you do is put a little piece in your mouth and sorta suck and chew to get all the sweet juice out.

Want to go next level? Put it through a press and squeeze all the juice out. One stalk will easily fill your class full of this stuff. It is delicious.

Now check this out. If you let it sit out for a day it will spontaneously ferment. No joke. You can leave it open to the air and natural yeasts will work their magic and you will have a lightly alcoholic beverage.

And I don’t even want to get into how you can make it into syrup, sugar or a rum! This green grass grows like weeds here on the property. I’ve been growing the stuff at my house for years and brought some cane up to the campgrounds and let it run wild.

Now we have thousands of sugar cane stalks for you to see and sample! While you are here we encourage you to cut down a cane and either chop it up for chewing or put it through the cane press we have on property.
