North Sutton, N.H. — It soon will be ice harvesting time, when families gather, bundle up and share a New England tradition at Kezar Lake and Muster Field Farm Museum.
The farm will hold its annual Ice Harvest Day at Horse Beach in North Sutton on Sunday, January 26, 2014, from 9 a.m. until the ice is in.
Help cut ice blocks from the lake for delivery up to the farm.
Using an ice block fulcrum, volunteers will load the ice blocks onto wagons and vehicles then haul it to the farm’s Ice House, where it will be stacked for use at summer events.
The farm’s Ryder Corner School House will be warm and welcoming, serving homemade desserts and hot beverages.
Pete Lauridsen and friends will display antique cars converted to snowmobiles at the farm and the Sutton Ridgerunners will stage an Ice Day ride-in for all area snowmobilers. Free admission (donations appreciated). Rain date: February 2.
