PAVILION, N.Y. Have you ever wondered what happens to the massive butter sculpture at the New York State Fair each year?

A Western New York farm recycles the 800 pounds of butter into energy. Noblehurst Farms in the Town of Pavilion in Genesee County will recycle all that butter into enough energy to power a home for a whole day.

And here’s another fun fact: Over the course of the year the farm recycles enough food waste to operate the farm and power 300 homes.
