Mail Order butter beans, pink-eyes, and other southern produce

I was not sure where to post this, home cooking seemed to be the best bet...I am looking to order speckled butter beans, crowder peas, and other southern staples and am not sure where to look. In one of Ronni Lundy's cookbooks, King Cotton Produce in Montgomery, Al was listed as a source. Unfortunately, they have since closed.
I would welcome any recommendations or advice you all may have! Thanks!
WHere are you that you can't find these things? Just curious. I can get all of this in the frozen food section at the grocery store here in Houston, Tx. They also have the dried beans and the canned ones. You should try purple hull peas- very good. And butter beans are made from large white lima beans. But you need a leftover hambone!
You could look at Amazon - they have a food section now.
If you are looking to mail order southern food, have you tried Lee Bros. Boiled Peanut web site?
Thanks for all the help! Those websites all had a little bit to offer and now I have some new resources!
Being a Virginian, transplanted to North Carolina, then South Carolina, and about a year ago to the Baltimore area, I know a little of what you're going through.
