This organic farm outside Ellicott City is a fun farm destination. In addition to lard from pastured pigs, the have lots of other great products such as pastured-raised chickens and eggs, a B&B on the property, and summer kid's program.
Click on "pork products in 1 lb. packages or larger"... and then scroll down to find lard. But I'm told this is just a list of what they usually carry.... and that you will need to go to the property to pick up the products. I don't think they ship.

Bob has wonderful organic lard... and lots of it. Not sure if he will ship, but the quality is fantastic. I visited the farm and he showed me around. See the green "grass" the pigs are chomping on? Well, that is some special winter mix of sprouted grains Bob grows for the pigs in the winter when they aren't able to forage in the forests and fields.
They have a Facebook page, so if you Like it, you will be able to message Bob about a visit.
Many Hands Organic Farm make their lard from back fat and leaf lard combined from their own pigs or those from Misty Brook Farm (www.mistybrook.com), the neighboring farm that is also organic.

They are fed organic whey from neighbors cows, and supplemented with nature's best organic creamer grain, which is soy, corn, and mineral based.
