Leaf Lard near Providence/Worcester?

Does anyone know of a local (RI/MA) purveyor of leaf lard? I have tried specialty butchers, packing houses and bakery suppliers with no luck. Most people asked don't even know what it is. It is available from Prairie Pride on line, but the shipping & packaging (ground UPS) doubles the cost to about $60.00 for four pounds. With pie season here, leaf lard is desired. Oh, that fragile, meltingly tender crust...

    1. If your looking for 1 pound blocks. Stop and Shop has it or JAR Baking supply in Lincoln RI. You cant beat leaf lard but We find Plugra unsalted butter is just as good.
