I can't believe it IS butter: This sculpture is made of pounds of it

Aside from the amount of butter it took to create the sculpture, what may be surprising is how it will be used once it's no longer on display.


The butter sculpture at the 2022 Pennsylvania Farm Show has been unveiled.

The sculpture depicts a dairy farmer in a rural community sharing a glass of milk with urban gardeners in front of a city skyline, celebrating how they come together to feed communities.

The sculpture was crafted over 14 days by Jim Victor and Marie Pelton.

The artists used more than 1,000 pounds of butter donated by Land O' Lakes in Carlisle, Pennsylvania.

After the Farm Show, the butter will be converted into renewable energy at Reinford Farm in Juniata County.

The 106th Farm Show's eight-day run kicks off Saturday and continues through Jan. 15.
