After hearing that The Big E has a butter sculpture, the clan and I headed up to West Springfield, Massachusetts to check it out. Having never seen a butter sculpture before, I was seriously impressed by how realistic the sculpture was.
Jim Victor, the sculptor, has spent years sculpting butter. Though he started out with chocolate, he has found a niche in the sculpture world. Made from over 600 pounds of butter, the sculpture took 10 days to complete. Attendees were able to watch as Jim intricately carved out every detail.
Dairy had a major presence throughout the entire fair. From ice cream bars to cattle competitions to vintage milk bottles, there was plenty to see. The best thing I tried at the fair was the delicious chocolate milk shake I got from the local Hampden County Dairy Bar. But the highlight of my day was definitely saying hello to the beautiful Angus cows!

The other afternoon, I was lucky enough to get up close and personal with one of my favorite local chefs, Luke Venner. I got a chance to hang out behind the scenes, whip up some bomb butter and chat all things Churncraft.
A few weeks ago, a jury of 39 design experts from around the world met in Germany to judge more than 5’500 product innovations from 54 countries. After careful evaluation, the jury paid tribute to Churncraft’s design with the coveted Red Dot distinction. The Churncraft butter churn will be exhibited at the Red Dot Design Museum in Essen, Germany, along with the other winners.
