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!
