A sculpture unveiled Thursday brings together the east and west.
At the Pennsylvania Farm Show in Harrisburg, Lt. Gov. John Fetterman and Secretary of Agriculture Russell Redding unveiled a half-ton butter sculpture depicting three of Pennsylvania’s beloved professional sports mascots – Philadelphia Flyers’ Gritty, Philadelphia Eagles’ Swoop, and Pittsburgh Steelers’ Steely McBeam. The tree are celebrating tailgating with dairy products.
Work to create the butter sculpture began in mid-December with butter donated Land O’ Lakes in Carlisle, Cumberland County.
Once the farm show ends, the butter will be moved to the Reinford Farm in Juniata County to be converted into renewable energy using a methane digester.
The sculpture’s creation was sponsored by the American Dairy Association North East (ADANE).
You can see the butter sculpture at the Pennsylvania Farm Show that starts this Saturday and runs through Saturday, January 11. The event is the largest of its kind in the country and is free to attend.
