CARVER COUNTY, MN – Lenny eats like a pig, but that’s OK. (After all, he is one.)
“His favorite foods are Lays potato chips and gummy bears,” said his owner, Abby Pawelk, whose family operates LuceLine Orchard in Watertown.
Lenny came to the orchard as a tiny baby two years ago. He weighed about as much as a pineapple then, but has since grown to between 40 and 50 pounds.
