“It began with a plow and grew into a family tradition.”

In 1947 a plowing contest was held on the Jack Roe property in Meridian. This was the birth of an idea to get the city folks, businessmen, and farmers together to better understand one another. Some farm organizations sponsored the educational program. The idea was so well received that it was decided to form an organization to keep the event alive. The organization became the Butler Farm Show, Inc., in 1948.

It is with heavy hearts that we report to you that a long time concession stand operator and friend of the Butler Farm Show, Sam Capicotto has passed away. Sam, here with daughter Maria, operated several stands at the farm show for many years. His children were taught a great work ethic in those stands from Sam and his wife Gloria. Sam loved his family and they still worked together. We're going to miss the friendly "agitating" that everyone at the farm show enjoyed with Sam. Sam will be greatly missed. Please keep Gloria and their family in your prayers! ... See MoreSee Less
