Where to get leaf lard in Merrimack valley?

Dio, my neighbor CLAIMS to have gotten leaf lard from Haverhill Beef for making cretons. I think they're right on River St, so they might be worth a call/drive.
Last year I bought leaf lard online as well as other products from Flying Pigs farm (they're in NY)but I don't know if you want to try that. If you do, the address is www.flyingpigsfarm.com.
Haverhill Beef no longer carries leaf lard. If I were going to point you in a direction, I would say try an oriental market.
Info is right, my neighbor lied....maybe some Hispanic markets, too, might have it?
It's a slow work day so I called my foodie buddy down the hall and though this isn't the Merrimack Valley, apparently there's a farm that sells fresh leaf lard and other good stuff not too far away--
94 West Main Street (aka route 225)
I am not sure if this is "legal" or not, but I have some extra leaf lard (rendered and non) that I could part with. I think we are both in the Boston area? drop me an email if you want to discuss: firstname.lastname@example.org
Blood Farm does sell leaf lard as well as many other excellent meats. I got a huge bag of lard from them about a month ago, I think they charge less then $1 per pound so my big bag costed around $5. We are regulars there and have found everything to be of outstanding quality.
Twist of Fate Farm in Dunbarton, NH (a little west of Manchester) has frozen packages of leaf lard @ 49 cents a pound. Pork sausage, beef, turkey, rabbit, and fresh eggs too. Well worth the trip.
