EXCLUSIVELY ONLINE: ALLAGASH - On Dickey road in Allagash, Wade Kelly and Sue Underhill raise new pigs every year for consumption. Upon moving to the area, Underhill decided to raise pigs along with her significant other, Wade Kelly. The couple began to notice that a lot of people stopped in daily to throw scraps of food and observe the pigs. Unsure of whether it was the pigs themselves or the lack of attractions in the area, the couple continued to raise pigs with each passing year, with more and more people visiting, up to five people a day. With increased awareness came donations in the form or troughs for the scraps of food and what would become the sign currently outdoors. Darlene Kelly volunteered to paint the sign, and Underhill suggested Kelly go with the “It takes a village to raise a pig.” Upon completion and erection of the sign, the couple noticed even more people taking an interest than before. According to Underhill, the pigs have become an unofficial mascot of the area. - SJVT photos / Manzer Belanger
