Please check the event website before attending, to verify the details and make sure there's no change.

Sunday, February 4 @ 2:00 pm

Draft horses at the Dreibelbis Farm

The annual Ice Harvest at the Historic Dreibelbis Farm will include a demonstration of antique ice harvesting tools and (weather permitting) cutting and harvesting ice blocks from the ice pond. We’ll explain how ice was hauled to and loaded in the ice house.

The first presentation will begin at 2:15; a 2nd presentation will be at 3:00. We’ll offer horse-drawn sleigh or wagon rides for a small fee. A bonfire, homemade soup, 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 or pouring rain cancelling. If thin ice prevents walking on the pond, a demonstration of tools and techniques will still be held. Attendees are encouraged to dress for the weather and be prepared to walk on an unpaved farm lane that may be icy or muddy.

The Historic Dreibelbis Farm is located on Route 143 south of the village of Virginville. GPS Address: 356 Hard Hill Road, Hamburg, PA.

Parking will be available behind the Virginville Grange.
