          I see a sign for pigs and goats on the westbound entrance to the Sunrise Hwy at # 59 Manorville/Center Moriches ny

            I'll see if I can dig up the name, but there's a farm a bit east of Riverhead on Sound Avenue that sells pigs, goats and cows. They grow them and slaughter them onsite.

            If you drive east on sound avenue, its on the north side of the road with a large, white, hand written sign by the driveway.


      2. Any good butcher shop can special order one. They can get them frozen from the Manhattan meat market, or fresh from a big supplier in Westchester, and they should know how to source it. Just tell them how many pounds you want it to be. Suckings I think are 20-30? But you can get bigger too, if you need. The fresh ones actually come in little wooden coffins, I had to drive one out to Montauk once and didn't want to look in the rear view mirror. I advise buying one as close to you as you can, unless you own a hearse ;-) Try to get a baby pineapple for the mouth, it adds a nice touch.
