where to buy a whole suckling pig

I'm from the UK and I'm going to be in New Orleans for a week for a wedding in April. Whilst there, on one of the days we're planning to have a big BBQ for all the wedding guests at one of the houses we've rented (that house sleeps over 20 and has a big pool/bbq/outdoors area)

was thinking about buying a whole suckling pig - can anyone recommend a butcher that would sell one? we're staying on napoleon avenue, near uptown, but will have a car so can drive if there's not a good butcher locally.

many thanks

  1. I haven't bought one from them but I'd give Cleaver & Co. a call. I don't think they're the cheapest around but their meat has been excellent every time.
