HARRISBURG, PA (WENY) – A 1,000 pound butter sculpture was unveiled at the PA Farm Show last week.

The sculpture will be on display all next week for the event. It took volunteers 14-days to create the dairy masterpiece. The butter was donated by Land O’ Lakes in Carlisle.

The sculpture’s theme is “Harvesting More, Together”, and it depicts a diary farmer sharing a glass of milk with urban gardeners to celebrate how they come together to feed communities. In the background, a butter farm is placed near an urban setting — complete with butter buildings.

Dairy farmer Casandra Long of Doodle-A-Long Farms in Spring City, Pa., said, “The butter sculpture is a creative way to highlight the state’s dedicated dairy farmers and the important role agriculture plays in our lives. Producing nutritious milk and dairy products and feeding people is what I love most about being a dairy farmer.”

The butter sculpture is on display in the Farm Show’s Main Hall at the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex & Expo Center in Harrisburg. Following the Farm Show, the butter will be moved to the Reinford Farm in Juniata County to be converted into renewable energy.
