2017 Pennsylvania Farm Show Fun

A day-trip to Harrisburg for the 101st annual Pennsylvania Farm Show!
Lots to see and do here while appreciating farmers across the state.
We love to see the animals, but there's so much more!
Enjoy my photos from this terrific event!

Every year Land O' Lakes of Carlisle donates 1,000 pounds of butter that are 
used for the Farm Show's butter sculpture, a tradition that began in 1991.
This year, the  Farm Show's theme is “Culture of Stewardship,”
so the sculpture shows some of the innovative practices
that farmers use to enrich the soil and reduce storm water runoff.
The very talented sculptors are Jim Victor & Marie Pelton.

Can't beat the taste of those German Roasted NutsAnd the aroma is divine!

Fell in love with stroopies! Yummy caramel layered between cinnamon wafers!

We love this maple syrup! Congrats, Hamilton's Maple Products!

Lunch in the Food Court is always a yummy adventure!

Apple cider slushies - a refreshing new addition this year.

Popular potato donuts.

Everybody loves the milk shakes!

Young girls ready to show their llamas.

The husband was wowed by this booth!

"I'm really rockin' these bangs, aren't I?"
We love the ultra soft alpacas!

A huge selection of cowboy hats!

Bobby Howard, our favorite driver for the horse pull event,
grooms one of his horses before it's time to head out to the Large Arena.

And here's Bobby doing what he does best.

It's always interesting to stop and watch the auction.

Didn't win at the auction?
Here's another way to take home a hog...
and a sheep, a horse, and a cow!
