Pig Cheeks - where to buy in Denver/Westminster?

Hey guys, having a bear of a time trying to find a local butcher that carries pig cheeks/hog jowls. Anyone have a recommended place that has them?

I'm heading to the Pacific Ocean marketplace in Westminster/Broomfield next to look for them there. Have tried: several butcher stores in the area, carnicerias, and called the wholesale guys in Denver - who do have them, but only in boxes of 25 :(

  1. You might try Edwards Meats (in Wheat Ridge). A bit of a drive, but they seem to have just about everything meat-related. Nice folks, too.

      1. In Season Local Market indicated they can get any part of a pig you want. Email is best to contact them, because if you call you might talk to a part time person who does not know everything.

      2. If you are a member of certain food coops or CSAs, you can ask the farmers directly for anything, but they will not be available until the next slaughter

      For example:
