Ice cutting weekend at Farm & Wilderness

Feb. 13–16 — PLYMOUTH — The sign on the Tamarack Farm front porch says “Work is Love made Visible.” This is never truer than at a Farm & Wilderness Work Weekend. Each weekend is complete with communal work projects, food, fun and a boisterous night of contra dancing.

You will be a part of the time-honored tradition of cutting ice from the pond at Flying Cloud to store in the ice house. Your hard work will provide the sole source of refrigeration for Flying Cloud’s food the following summer!

The days begin with an invigorating hike through the snow up to Flying Cloud, then working in teams to cut, haul and stack large ice blocks. You return to the Tamarack Farm lodge in the evening with sore muscles, but full of the sweet feeling that comes from being outside all day in the winter air. After hot cocoa, hot food, a sauna and singing, you will be ready for a night of dancing.
