Buchheit welcomes new member to the Jacksonville community

    The Buchheit family and the Jacksonville community welcome a new member. She is a black beauty who weighs 38 lbs. and is 35 inches long. Born July 27, 2014 and raised in Bismarck, Miss., this potbellied pig was awarded her name, Daisy, by members of the community through name submissions and votes. She is welcomed home by countless chick sisters.
    The public is invited to stop by and see Daisy. Her home is in the Buchheit of Jacksonville store farm department. She will be walked through the store every weekend by a lucky shopper. Those who would like to take Daisy for her walk should be there Saturday and Sunday at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. She certainly puts on a show and seems to enjoy the attention from the shoppers as she walks the aisles.
