Farm & Wilderness' Annual Ice Harvest [213] 

2/19/11: Farm & Wilderness was founded in 1939 and promotes hard work, Quaker values and a connection to nature. For more than 40 years, it has welcomed campers and their parents for an Annual Ice Cutting Weekend.

After hiking 1.5 miles through deep snow, visitors use a human-powered pulley system to haul large blocks of ice up a hill. The goal is to fully stock the ice house at Flying Cloud, an off-the-grid summer camp teaching boys the joys of simple living.

Music: Greg Davis, Curling Pond Woods, "Curling Pond Woods"

Since 2014, Seven Days has allowed readers to comment on all stories posted on our website. While we’ve appreciated the suggestions and insights, the time has come to shut them down — at least temporarily.

While we champion free speech, facts are a matter of life and death during the coronavirus pandemic, and right now Seven Days is prioritizing the production of responsible journalism over moderating online debates between readers.

To criticize, correct or praise our reporting, please send us a letter to the editor. Or send us a tip. We’ll check it out and report the results.

Online comments may return when we have better tech tools for managing them. Thanks for reading.
