PIck up a FREE but wee package of BROOM CORN seeds from the Bouchie Lake Country Store & get yourself growing your own broom. We will have a Broom Corn Display at the 3rd Annual Bouchie Lake Harvest Festival scheduled for Sept. 30th. Broomcorn (Sorghum vulgare var. technicum) is a type of sorghum that is used for making brooms and whiskbrooms. It differs from other sorghums in that it produces heads with fibrous seed branches that may be as much as 36 in. long. Although the origin of broomcorn is obscure, sorghum apparently originated in central Africa. Production of this crop then spread to the Mediterranean, where people used long-branched sorghum panicles for making brooms in the Dark Ages. The long fibrous panicle of the broomcorn plant is used for making brooms.
