Tully Ice Harvest Festival

leave a comment »

This is a video portraying what goes into “ice harvesting.” Gordon Howard, a volunteer with the Tully Ice Harvest Festival in Tully, NY, explains what goes on at Green Lake, which was where this footage was shot. This was done in 2009.

Each year in Tully, people come together and harvest the ice, which means they basically cut it into squares and store it in an Ice House.

Farmers had their own ponds and had an ice house to help keep their milk cold and anything else that might need refrigeration, Howard said. This was very helpful back in the old days. When people started getting refrigerators, it became more commercial.
