Where to buy Pork Fatback in central NH?

Anyone know any butcher shops or grocery stores in central NH that carry pork fatback? And will sell it in less than 100 lbs?

  1. I think I've seen it in Market Basket.

    1. Saw some beautiful fat back (also leaf fat) at the Tilton Farmers Market (Saturdays 10am-2pm) in the former Agway store on Rt 3 (south of the outlet malls). The pork is raised by Phoenix Hill Farm in Boscawen NH (I93, exit 17). They said people can call to pickup at the farm. I was only interested in a small package for salt pork purposes. The packages they were selling at the winter market might have been 5-10 lbs. I say beautiful because they were cooking up pork and fat back in an electric skillet and giving out samples.

      I did not happen to check with the other meat vendors for availability and prices. Some of the winter markets have a good list of their vendors on their websites. There might be a place closer to you.
