About Us

he Ice Farm is owned and operated by world class ice sculptor and New York State native, Stan Kolonko.

The Ice Farm provides hand carved ice sculptures for weddings, banquets, corporate functions, birthdays, anniversaries, festivals and other special events.

The Ice Farm provides ice carving blocks of un-matched quality to sculptors around central NY.

Our Ice is unmatched in quality and purity, utilizing reverse osmosis filtration and Clinebells ice machines which provide the clearest ice south of the Arctic Circle.

Corporate logos are one of the Ice Farm’s specialties, with a simple copy of your company’s logo, we can reproduce it on any size ice sculpture.

Multiple block ice sculptures are available for special events and festivals.  They are carved in advance in freezers and carefully delivered in pieces and assembled on site.  This minimizes the mess.

Stan is a member of the National Ice Carving Association.
