I think you should be able to purchase lard and/or tallow there. I know they have cattle and pigs, and those are a part of the diet. Therefore, you should at least be able to contact your local butchers to see if they carry it. But, you truly should be able to purchase it in your local stores.
Butcher will definitely have tallow for CHEAP. Great idea!
