Farm Show butter sculpture unveiled

Harrisburg

The Pennsylvania Farm Show butter sculpture has been revealed.

This year’s sculpture features several people in superhero capes, including an athlete, a soldier, a doctor, a firefighter, and a dairy farmer.

A longstanding tradition, the sculpture is carved from 1,000 pounds of butter, donated by the Land O’Lakes plant in Carlisle.

Sculptors Jim Victor and wife Marie Pelton began their work in mid-December. 

After the show, all that butter will go to a Juniata County farm to be converted into energy in a methane digester.

The sculpture will be on display in the Farm Show’s Main Hall.

The 103rd Pennsylvania Farm Show officially kicks off Saturday and runs through Jan. 12.
