  1. no clue but maybe call some local purveyors like richardson farms?

    1. I believe Sebastian Bonneu sells whole pigs. I don't his contact info, but I believe he is a frequent attraction at local farmers markets. I had also heard that you could buy a whole pig from Din Ho. Not sure about the veracity of that claim, but it is worth checking out.

        Longhorn Meat on MLK has what you need.

          Yep - got mine at Longhorn Meats and roasted it Cuban style with a homemade mojito marinade. Very reasonably priced. It's best to call ahead to find out when the next truck is due and to give them an approximate size (this one was about 90 lbs if I remember correctly).
          They also have a really great spicy sausage and sage sausage made in house. Really friendly folks, too.

           
      2. I'm pretty sure either Richardson or Peach Creek Farms would sell you a whole hog, and I've had delicious pork from both. Somebody else suggested Sebastien Bonneu (Countryside Farms), but I think he sells wild boar, which may or may not suit your needs.

          I can confirm Jim Richardson of Richardson farms will sell you a whole hog. At least he sold me one last year.

        2. Johnny G's on Slaughter and Manchaca. They are nice. I think you have to call ahead for whole hog.

          1. I've seen suckling pigs at Central Market North. It's probably not your cheapest place to buy one, though.
