I'd also suggest checking with a local farmer (if you've got a good source around you) for some. It's likely much cheaper than buying it already rendered and entirely possible that you might be able to get it for free from the farmer as well (that's what happened for me). I always figure it never hurts to ask. It's actually very easy to render lard on your own.
You'll want to either look for fat back or something like leaf lard (the fat around the kidneys).
