“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.

Butler Farm Show

The Butler Farm Show is saddened to share the news of the passing of board member Randy Kummer. Randy left this world this morning at age 67. Tonight the flag at the end of the track flies at half staff as we remember. Randy was elected to the farm show board in 1978 and was active on the tractor and truck pull committee, the buildings and grounds committee and the antique equipment committee as well as helping out in various capacities when a job needed done. Randy was everyone's friend - he'll be remembered for the countless hours of hard work year round, his stories, his smile, the corny jokes, his love of antique equipment, his Allis Chalmers tractors, and the love for his family - his wife Kathy, daughters Audra, Randi and Jessi their spouses and his 9 grandchildren. Randy lived life to it's fullest from pulling tractors, riding snowmobiles to his farm and his love of agriculture. He was an FFA member in highschool and received an associate degree in agriculture from Penn State University. Randy reached the end of the row in this life. He'll be fondly remembered and greatly missed by many! ... See MoreSee Less

The Butler Farm Show is very supportive of our 4H & FFA youth! The board of directors, again, purchased a cheese basket at the annual cheese auction held Wednesday evening during the farm show. The basket purchased this year belonged to Lily Ansell of Renfrew. Carrying her basket is her friend and neighbor, Lane Kummer of Evans City. Representing the Butler Farm Show are board members Ken Metrick, George Dean and Jr board member Mitchell Kerr. The contents of the basket were enjoyed at the wrap up meeting last month by the board members and superintendents! ... See MoreSee Less

Butler Farm Show

Today I had some work to do at the farm show office. Before leaving I drove around the grounds just to check things out. As the rain hit the windshield and the cool wind blew across the desserted farm show grounds, when I drove along passing certain spots on the grounds I couldn't help but remember....... the events, the people, the activities, the smells, the sounds, but most importantly - the smiles! Yes, the farm show is truly a happy place and even on dreary days like today, the memories of our farm show brings a smile to our faces. So here's a few smiles from 2018! Let's remember, and let's look forward to the 71st farm show, Aug 5-10....... hope these pictures bring a smile to your face!! ... See MoreSee Less

Butler Farm Show

Yes, the 2018 farm show is history but our maintenance folks, grounds committee and many farm show volunteers work year round to keep our grounds and buildings in shape and take care of "off season" events. Here's a picture of some of the guys trying to locate a water leak this past week. These are some of the things that go unnoticed to most people. Hats off to our crew and volunteers who make it all happen!! ... See MoreSee Less

Butler Farm Show

Jim Lokhaiser, our office manager, advertising rep, and recording secretary for 25+ years announced his retirement earlier this summer. At 83, Jim thought it was time to relax and pass the torch to someone else. The board of directors has set a committee to go forth and fill the position the best we can. Jim has been a blessing to the farm show and will be greatly missed in his daily farm show work, his stories, his sense of humor and his organizational skills that has kept the farm show running like a well oiled machine during farm show and also for the many, many "off season" activities that take place year around. Jim will stay on board until the position is filled. ... See MoreSee Less
