I've been fortunate enough to live in an area where 80 year old + farmers are still at it. There is an elderly man who's been growing cane, harvesting, processing, cooking and bottling old school sorghum molasses. He has now reached an age, where he wants to pass along his knowledge of growing this crop from start to beautiful bottles of thick, rich molasses.
I've been asked me help find someone interested in learning his trade and buying his equipment for the process. if you're interested in this, please p.m. me with name, interest level etc. If you have land to grow the sorghum etc and able to come down to south central VA to meet, participate etc in the harvest & processing. I do not know what he is asking for the equipment, but feel strongly that if he likes you and likes your passion, it will be a "friendly" price as we call it down south.

As a lover of molasses, I'm fascinated to see this equipment and process.
(I just made and ate some molasses cookies)
