Molasses Making Goes Modern – Almost

Record #:
The molasses mill in Cleveland County is one of the few places left in North Carolina where molasses is made. Fitzhugh McMurry's mill has been in operation for over a century. This year, McMurry planted fifteen acres of sugar cane and is expecting a yield of about six hundred gallons of molasses. McMurry begins making his molasses in mid-September, and has customers as far away as California come to purchase it.
