Upper Elementary students visited Howell Farm and traveled back to the 19th century to learn about Winter activities on the farm: Ice harvesting, quilting and ice cream making. The snow was perfect for the trip!
Howell Living History Farm’s ice harvesting program introduces students to circa 1900 food preservation through the use of ice and to winter farm-life in 1900. The Farm’s living history approach draws students back to a time period when the principles of preserving food were familiar to most people in America. During the ice harvesting season school groups help cut and store the ice crop and relive winter life on a 1900 farm. Everyones help is needed when it is time to pull the ice blocks up a wooden track to the icehouse. More information on The Howell Living History Farm can be found here.
