ATTENTION FRIENDS—The board of directors, the Jr board, committees, and volunteers are hard at work planning the 72nd Butler Farm Show!! We are praying that things will return to a more normal lifestyle by then! We are well aware that this is unpredictable and things could change but we will work closely with the PA Dept of Agriculture and follow any guidelines put in place. We will do all we can to keep our tradition alive and be able to give the opportunity to our 4H & FFA youth to be participants in the show. We will continue to plan and we feel optimistic about the future here in Butler Co. and in Pennsylvania! We will keep you posted and up to date!! Thanks for your support and please keep our farm show and our farm show family in your prayers!! Please feel free to share this message with your friends!
“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.
