Suckling pig in Fort Worth area

l

Where can I get a suckling pig in the Fort Worth area, or order one online to be delivered?

After reading "Heat" I am in love with the idea of cooking pig...and lots of it. However, I'll start small and see where a barbecued smaller pig takes me. And I love the thought of having it in the freezer to scare the heck out of anyone looking for ice cubes. :)

Thanks!

    Have you tried your local sources first?

    http://www.localharvest.org/

    http://www.sbrowning.net/homestead/ - Homestead Farms is local in Keller and sells pork. I would call them and ask about your request.

    That would be my suggestion!

      VonGeertsem (VG's) Butcher Shoppe sells whole pigs, goats and lambs... they are in Dallas and usually only need a couple days notice

      LorenRae,

      El Rancho Supermercado has whole and 1/2 pigs as well as sides of beef and whole goats for sale. I would bet that you could get them to order one for you. I think there is one in Arlington. I don't know about Cowtown though.

        we just ordered one it was a 47lb one and it roasted up beautiful. We had our local little Mexican Market in Carrollton order it for us it was about $ 3.00 per lb.

          Pretty sure El Rancho is more in the 99 cent range. I have seen suckling pigs and whole hogs as the birddogfoodie mentioned. What marvelous resources we have in Dallas.
