Farmer Minor and Daisy, the Famous Pot Belly Pig!
Farmer Minor and his famous reading pig, Daisy, came to the Osceola Library on Monday, August 4 at 9:30 a.m. to present their "Pig Out on Reading" program. They have been traveling all across the United States, and their mission is TO ENCOURAGE YOUNGSTERS TO DEVELOP A LOVE FOR READING. They traveled from their family farm, "Minor's Farm", in Bristol, Connecticut. Daisy has presented programs in all 48 contiguous states and has been on three national tours.
Farmer Minor shared his story about how he and Mrs. Minor came to acquire Daisy. He shared Daisy noises, gave Daisy a treat, and talked about Daisy's pampered life and about how she became the most famous pig. Daisy got her very own library card from the Osceola Public Library, and at the end of the program, everyone was able to pet or kiss Daisy.To see photos from their visit, just click on the "Daisy the famous pig" link on the left side of your screen.
