Hundreds of spectators come to watch a couple dozen volunteers help with Ice Harvest Day, an annual event held by the Muster Field Farm Museum in North Sutton. Volunteers show up around 9 a.m. with trucks and trailers. They use historic ice cutting tools, stored off season in Ezekiel Little Barn, like pros. They lift 200-pound ice 'cakes' out of the lake with the fulcrum, built in 1988 out of hemlock, and seamlessly deliver them to a team waiting by a truck that delivers ice to the farm on Harvey Road. It's cold, but it's a fun event.

Agriculture is alive and well at Muster Field Farm in North Sutton, as it has been for the last four centuries. Throughout the year, the 18th century working farm and historical homestead hosts events that highlight the rural tradition of New Hampshire agricultural life, such as Farm Days in August. It is also open on Sundays for families looking for an afternoon excursion.

The Vernondale Store is located in a building that has served as the general store for North Sutton since the late 1700s. It is conveniently located on Route 114 near two inns, Wadleigh State Park, Muster Field Farm and the new middle school.
