This is an Old Order Amish Farm that I have spent a lot of time at over the last 12 years or so. They are a great family with eight children. The oldest two boys are now adults and so there are less hands to help out on the farm. One characteristic of most Amish is they get a job done as efficiently as possible, within the limitations of their religion.

They make sure to leave about 4" of water in the frame so that they can continue skating the rest of the winter. They will take up the wood frame and fold the plastic, in the spring and put it into storage until next fall.
Amish Ingenuity at its finest.
