    I get mine from my local butcher. And you can always make your own if your butcher sells / gives you some pork fat. Or beef fat to make beef drippings.

    I think D3 in these amounts can be found in pork fat only. Pigs synthesise Vitamin D the same way the humans do, through skin and store it in their fat.

    If it is from a farmer it is probably good. If it is from a factory then probably not.

    DO NOT buy conventional lard as it is very bad. It's hydrogenated and comes from unhealthy animals. If you can't find pastured lard, go with grass-fed butter which are available at most supermarkets (kerrygold brand is grass-fed, organic valley has a "pastured" product, see if you can find either).
