Does anyone know where one could purchase a skin-on, blanched, 16 to 20 lb suckling pig? I can find 30 to 35 pounders all day long but I don't consider them suckling pigs anymore.

I used to buy sausage from them at farmer's markets when I lived in Chicago. They're good people. If they can't do it (it might be out of season), they wouldn't hesitate to recommend someone who can.

I don't remember the technicalities, but there's something about piglets being vaccinated at three or four weeks old and not being able to sell them until six weeks later: At 10 weeks old, they're in the 30-lb. range, so that's probably why you're having a hard time finding the little guys.

You can contact the Meat Lab at Cal Poly Pomona, but you have to pick up. You didn't say where you are located.

Dealaman in NJ is the largest supplier of suckling pigs to the Chinese market in NYC. They are in Warren NJ. 908-755-1780. They will have any size pig you need. D'Artagnan most likely gets their's from these guys.
