lard, tallow, good extensive butchers in Madison, Wisconsin?

^ I posted the thread above after I found some nontraditional meats like ostrich, emu, duck eggs, and lamb heart at the Farmer's Market at the Capital Square here in Madison. But I would like to continue to try all the exotic nontraditional foods that I can find before I leave when summer is over.

Can you please tell me where are the best butchers and meat shops here? Here are just some of the things that I would like to buy:

lard, tallow, duck fat, geese, raw milk, raw milk cheese and butter, suet, bone marrow, and many other things as well.

Where do you recommend? I am staying right by East Campus Mall at the University Square if that helps any.

From my research, I have found these two places: <- hopefully for exotic meats but on the phone they said their online is menu is outdated so they don't carry a lot of things the advertisement says they. (ie no duck, etc.)
Whole Foods Madison for duck fat
Cops for lard
Farmer's Market for raw milk and butter
UWP meats, Woodmans, Dicks,
Conscious Carnivore (black earth meats) for bone marrow and suet

Thank you
