Farm Show Butter Sculpture Contest

A 20-pound mini butter sculpture of the 2022 Harvesting More Farm Show logo, sculpted by Garret McCall, winner of the 2021 Butter Up! competition held during the virtual 2021 PA Farm Show, is pictured. The contest returns for this year’s Farm Show.

For a second year, the Department of Agriculture and Pennsylvania Farm Show invite Pennsylvanians to Butter Up! and try their hands at crafting a do-it-yourself butter sculpture. The contest, conducted on social media, will be open for submissions from Friday, Dec. 3, through noon on Friday, Dec. 17.

“Every year, millions tune in to see the unveiling of a 1,000-pound sculpture to kick off our annual Pennsylvania Farm Show,” said Agriculture Secretary Russell Redding. “The butter sculpture shines a spotlight on the goodness of Pennsylvania dairy and the hardworking people who keep nutritious products on our tables year-round. Now everyone can get in the act and show off their artistic flair with one of Pennsylvania’s favorite products.”
