The former home of America’s largest pickle salting station is poised for a new future in industry.

The cute little pink piglet contentedly chewed on the fresh green grass, oblivious to the interruption that was about to descend on her peaceful bliss. The piglet was the star of the show in the third annual Trufant Jubilee Pig Scramble where children — and adults — had the opportunity to catch the porker and win an impressive trophy and a few minutes of fame.
BreAnna Schultz isn’t quite sure what the Trufant Jubilee queen does, but the 17-year-old is about to find out.
