Whole Lamb, striking out on sources?

I'm striking out on the usual sources I buy from, Denbesten farm, blood farm, some place in Barre Mass whose name I forgot....

Anyway, any ideas where I can get a whole lamb this week, live is ok as I've found no farmer likes to take just one animal to the slaughterhouse.

      1. Why don't you call some of the wholesalers - William & Co, Cambridge Packing - they might be able to help - Dole and Bailey - they might give you a hard time if you don't have an account, but maybe they won't You could also get in touch with D'artagnan - I think they do whole lamb.
        And worst case -http://www.fed-rickveal.com/ - my friend and I got two lambs from them last summer, but they are in providence.

          1. If there are halal butchers in your area, order one from them.

            1. El Madina Market in Revere is where I would go.
