HAMBURG, NY (WKBW) - Meet Tony and Jim Staub. Tony founded Staub Machine, a Hamburg manufacturing company, back in 1975. Jim works there as production supervisor and owns the food stand Jim's Fries.

So during the Fair, the brothers are busy cooking up some of the best french fries on the fairgrounds.

The stand won best outdoor display this year.
"We pride ourselves on quality and giving people, the public, the best food we can give them," said Jim Staub. "It's a fun business. We're dealing with people who are having fun. It's a lot of work, but it's fun work."

The Staub's also got a ribbon for their ongoing support of the 4H program. More than 200 kids take part in 4H and FFA, Future Farmers of America, at the Fair. They convinced to Staub go to their livestock auction.

"Last year, something went wrong and I couldn't keep my hand down and I bought eight animals, which is three cows, two pigs, two sheep/lambs and a goat," Tony Staub said. "What we did is, we packaged all the meat up, had it processed, and gave it to the employees. So each employee got about seven pounds of meat. They were thrilled."

This year, his buying spree continues. A livestock auction is set for Saturday at 1pm at the fairgrounds Showplex.
