Burr Hubbell, president of the Board of Trustees of Hanford Mills Museum, shared a few projects with us.
“Back in March, I made an Irish Soda bread, baked in a cast iron frying pan in the oven of the coal-fired Kalamazoo stove.”
The Royal Bride Cook Stove in the Hanford House can use either coal or wood as fuel.
“In April, the project was building a cold frame to start some early greens. The cold frame is in front of the “Cornell Approved” Chicken Coop. The chickens really ‘got into it’. They liked the way it warmed the dirt.”
“Got the sides on, filled it with compost and dirt, planted, and of course we got a little snow.”
