HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – The butter sculpture has been revealed.
A longstanding Pennsylvania Farm Show tradition, the butter sculpture is carved from a half-ton of butter.
This year’s theme is the diversity of Pennsylvania agriculture, specifically the careers and roles that support the dairy industry.
The sculpture features a dairy cow and farmer, dairy professionals, and a woman with a basket of Pennsylvania products.
Sculptors Jim Victor and Marie Pelton began their work in mid-December. They used waste scrap butter that is not suitable for human consumption.
After the show, all that butter will go to a Juniata County farm and turned into energy in a methane digester.
The butter sculpture is on display in the Farm Show’s Main Hall.
The 102nd Pennsylvania Farm Show officially kicks off Saturday and runs through Jan. 13.
