The 103rd Pennsylvania Farm Show is underway in Harrisburg and yesterday Conshohocken-residents Jim Victor and Marie Pelton unveiled their annual butter sculpture.
Governor Tom Wolf and Secretary of Agriculture Russell Redding helped unveil the sculpture, carved from a half-ton of butter, that encourages Pennsylvanians to support our state’s dairy industry.
The sculpture, sponsored by the American Dairy Association North East, features individuals wearing superhero capes, including an athlete, a soldier, a doctor, a firefighter, and a dairy farmer.
Following the Farm Show, the butter will be moved to the Reinford Farm in Juniata County to be converted into renewable energy in the farm’s methane digester.
