Show & Tell on the Farm
Pioneer Ice Farmers
Welcome to Show & Tell on the Farm! Join us with the video below for lessons & activities you can do from home. Today's topic, Pioneer Ice Farmers, covers how ice was harvested before refrigeration. Before you watch the video, take a guess. Where do you think it came from?
Thanks to volunteers, Ed Creighton and Michael & Marla Gorman, for starring in today's video!
