Unhappy

I need to know if there is an insulating product on the market that could be blown onto a fieldstone foundation in the basement to insulate it.
The house was built in 1840 and the floors are drafty due to air coming through the foundation. I have insulated the floors with fiberglass but still have and ice box in the cold NH winters. Can anyone help?

You might want to try an insulating foam called "Great Stuff" for filling any cracks. It is great, and a little bit goes a LONG WAY. It expands after it leave the "tube", and has worked well for me in sealing air leaks.
