Local source of pastured lard?

I'm trying to find a good local place to buy lard, but I only want to cook with it if it's from pastured pigs, or at the very least NOT fed soy. Anyone know of a winter farmer's market or store that sells this? I live in Brookline but I'm willing to drive a bit.

I don't care if it's "leaf lard" or not, since I won't be using it for pastries, just that it be pastured.

  1. I don't know what kind it is, but Cutty's in Brookline was just advertising in the store that they sell lard for $5/lb. Worth calling and seeing what kind...

    1. I've gotten pastured lard from Pete & Jen's Backyard Birds based out in Concord. Not sure what retail locations might carry it closer to Boston, but it might be worth asking them.
