2022 Butter Sculpture

Harvesting More, Together

“Harvesting More, Together” is the theme for the 31st butter sculpture at the PA Farm Show. 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.

Meet the Sculptors

Since 2008, Pennsylvania-based husband and wife team Jim Victor and Marie Pelton have been creating the butter sculptures! Throughout their career, the duo has used various foods such as butter, cheese, and chocolate for their imaginative, artistic creations.

A Tribute to the Pennsylvania Farm Show Butter Sculpture

The anticipation of the butter sculpture unveiling has built up for nearly 2 years! Since the 2021 Farm Show was canceled due to unprecedented times, we are thrilled to bring the butter sculpture back this year. Watch our 2021 tribute to the butter sculpture and take a trip down memory lane to learn when it all began.

Fill a Glass with Hope

Fill a Glass with Hope® is a partnership formed among American Dairy Association North East, the Pennsylvania Dairymen’s Association and Feeding Pennsylvania and it’s member food banks, that raises funds to enable food banks to purchase fresh milk directly from their local dairies in order to distribute it to families in need. Thanks to our generous supporters, the program has distributed more than 21 million servings of fresh milk since inception through the charitable food network of pantries, soup kitchen, shelters, and feeding programs. The 2022 Fill a Glass with Hope® campaign will kick off on Friday, January 7, 2022 as the Pa. Farm Show food court opens. There will be donation boxes at the milkshake and toasted cheese stands throughout the Pa. Farm Show and you can also donate online.
