Something to try at home?

Originally uploaded by Fieldlearning.
Butter sculpture at ag fairs has been popular since the 1920's. Every year the PA Farm show has one. Built and sculpted on a metal frame in a refrigerated case it is considered contaminated and destroyed after the show. Jim Victor from Conshohoken is a sought after food sculptor; he works all over the country. It is facinating to imagine 1000 pounds of butter (donated by Land O'Lakes) turned into a work of art. But if you live in PA you don't have to imagine, just get to the Farm Show by Saturday!
