HARRISBURG, Pa.--What is yellow and made from more than 1,000 pounds of butter?

Answer: The butter sculpture at the 100th Pennsylvania Farm Show!

This year's slick sculpture pays tribute to the 100th Pennsylvania Farm Show and the state’s agriculture industry. It depicts the many commodities grown and produced within Pennsylvania with a blue rosette ribbon, while capturing a show enjoyed by all ages: an FFA member exhibiting her dairy cow, along with a 4-H member with his baby chicks, a lady and gentleman showing off their blue ribbon apples and pies, and a quilt and spinning wheel behind them.

“For the past 100 shows, the Pennsylvania Farm Show has provided an opportunity for exhibits to display the best of the state’s agriculture industry and for visitors to learn more about how their food goes from the farm to the shelf,” said Agriculture Secretary Russell Redding. “Whether you’re enjoying your first Farm Show milkshake, displaying your best sewing work, or exhibiting your prized animal, everyone has their own blue ribbon experience at the Farm Show.”

The eight-day show is themed, “Our Commonwealth’s Blue Ribbon Experience.”

The Pennsylvania Farm Show runs January 9-15 from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. and January 16 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is free and parking is $15 in Farm Show lots.
