Any source of leaf lard in Seattle

For pie crust (American and British style), leaf lard is the best to combine with butter. So far, I've only seen online sources. Local would be better, if anyone can help.

  1. I've gotten it at The Swinery in West Seattle. Call first--they don't always have it, but with a day's notice they rendered some just for me.

    1. I've picked it up at the Farmers Market from Skagit Valley Ranch. Combine it with butter for the best pie crust you've ever made. I want to say they are at the West Seattle Market on Sunday but check their website for Farmers Market locations.

      1. Samish Bay Cheese and Olsen Farms generally have it as well. Both are at UD and other farmers markets.

        1. re: Daniel

          Thank you all for the suggestions. Sounds like I should be able to find it.

        2. Wooly Pigs at the U District farmers market has it.

          1. Sea Breeze Farms has it, too. Though it ain't cheap.
