Bay Area lard situation?

mbharrin | Mar 4, 200501:05 PM     4

I'm in search of lard for making pastry dough. Is it possible to find something around here which isn't partially hydrogenated? Armour brand lard is readily available, and there seem to be mysterious options at Mexican markets, but besides that I'm coming up empty handed. The Niman guys at the Ferry Plaza farmer's market used to have frozen lard, perhaps leaf lard, but last week i was told they're looking for a new supplier and didn't have any.

the Fatted Calf people at the Berkeley farmer's market sell "lardo", which i'm told is cured lard. for pastry purposes, that doesn't seem like what i want.
