After making sorghum syrup since the mid-1960s with others in the community, John and Emma Guenther started the family operation in the early 1980s. Three of their sons; Mark and wife Sherry, Pete and wife Doreen, and Eddie and wife Ruth run the mill now. John Guenther passed away December 22, 2018. Several of the grandchildren help at the mill, firing the boiler, bringing wood down from the pile, filling containers and labeling jars.
Muddy Pond Sorghum is a manufacturer and seller of 100% pure sorghum syrup. We also offer pure honey, and sorghum barbecue sauce, all made by the Guenther family. Our mill is located midway between Nashville and Knoxville in the hills of Tennessee. Come visit us during September and October and watch us make sorghum syrup. The sorghum mill is in operation beginning the Saturday before Labor Day, on Labor Day, and then we skip the next day, which is Tuesday. After that, we make sorghum every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday during September and October.
