Dan, Dan, the Sorghum man!

Seminole Nation Museum board member - and sorghum grower extraordinaire - Dan Houser endures the nearly 100-degree July weather to plant this year's crop of sorghum. The field will be "high as an elephant's eye" and ready for the festivities by late October. 

In the cool weather of the fall, the stalks will be harvested and pressed through the museum's century-old John Deere grist mill, rendering the sweet thin juice that will be cooked over an open fire into thick, amber-colored syrup.

It's never too early to start planning how you can help the Seminole Nation Museum celebrate the 39th Annual Wewoka Sorghum Festival on Saturday, October 25th, 2014 - all volunteers are welcome!

See you around the mill!
