History Is Alive At Georgia's Agrirama

Costumed interpreters provide the personal touch when it comes to demonstrating how our forefathers and mothers lived off the land.

A lone mule provides the power needed to squeeze juice from sugar cane fed into this 19th-century cane press. Interpreters at the Agrirama maintain the equipment and, in the fall, they harvest the sugar cane that is fed to the press. Volunteers then process the gallons of juice to yield pure cane syrup, which is then bottled and sold.
