The Dreibelbis Farm Historical Society will host our annual ice harvesting and hands-on demonstration of antique ice tools at the historic farm outside Virginville.

The demonstration will include a demonstration of antique ice harvesting tools and (weather permitting) cutting and harvesting ice blocks from the ice pond, hauling the ice to the ice house, and loading the ice house. We’ll have a team of draft horses for wagon or sleigh rides, too. A bonfire, light refreshments, and hot chocolate will be available and the farm grounds and nature trail will be open to the public.

The event is free to the public and will be held rain or shine, with only blizzard conditions cancelling. Call 610-488-896 for last minute information. Attendees should dress for the weather and be able to walk on rough or slippery farm paths.
