Chicken Necks and Backs

Anyone know a good source for chicken necks and backs for stock-making? Best quality is a concern, as well.

      Mississippi Market -- I'd call first, but I've purchased back there before (frozen section).

          Go to the St. Paul Farmers Market Saturday or Sunday morning. You can find great chicken packaged many ways with these vendors: Prairie Pride, Pasture-a-Plenty, and Callister Farms.

              Second the St Paul Farmer's Market. I have bought a package of frozen necks and backs from Callister I believe for cheap!
