How Sweet Living Farms Started
Our dream for Sweet Living Farms started more than 25 years ago. It all began in Arkansas’s Mississippi River Delta where we first saw the potential of this healthy, delicious, and ancient crop called Sorghum.
We discovered the potential of Sorghum farm when we purchased beehives from a farmer in the Ozark Mountain foothills of Arkansas. He had been growing 400 acres of Sorghum for years and produced Sorghum Syrup. He controlled the entire production process, and even built specialized harvesting and processing equipment to make his very own syrup.
Intrigued by his operation, we spent the last two decades researching and discovering how we could produce innovative products from the Sorghum crop and sustainably grow and produce it.
After moving to Florida to find better forage and environmental conditions for our bees we were able to become successful enough with our beekeeping to finally be able to have the time and finances to make our dream of growing sorghum a reality.
Thanks to the extensive experience and help of a nearby farmer who was successfully growing Sweet Sorghum to feed his cows and enrich the soil. We saw the opportunity to bring our dream to reality.
We started growing our first Sorghum crop, built our own processing plant, and produced our own Sorghum products – Sorgo Grass Juice andSorgo Grass Syrup.
From then on, our dreams continue to grow.
In addition to producing Sorgo Grass Juice and Syrup, we grow and produce Beet and Watermelon juices and products to expand our growing and harvesting seasons.
We were already producing honey through our sister company, Jester Bee Co., and felt like these great Florida varietal honey were a natural addition to our product line.
Delivering Healthy Products
We love producing healthy products that will be beneficial to everyone – no artificial additives or preservatives added.
Our Sorgo Grass juice and syrup are rich in Chlorophyll, antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals resulting from our unique processing methods that retain all the nutrients.
With these properties, rawness, and its delicious taste, we know that you will love it!
Our Farming Season
To keep our farm productive and fertile, we cycle crops all-year-round.
For Our Honey Products
During summer, our bees start to gather nectar from the Mangrove and Cabbage Palm trees. During the fall, our bees gather nectar from Brazillian Pepper. As soon as the bees have this nectar ripened into honey, we start to harvest the fresh crop. We usually have high-quality honey available year round.
June to December is the time we grow and harvest our Sorgo Grass, while the Beetroot harvest is from February to May, and watermelons are grown and harvested from April to June.
We have freshly pressed juice available during harvest periods, but we have high-quality frozen juice or juice concentrate available year round. We make the Sorgo Grass Syrup from 100% Pure Sorgo Grass Juice when it is freshly harvested, but it stores well like honey and we plan to have it available year round.
