If it's from pastured pigs, then I'd say get it.
Properly rendered lard is flavorless and has a high smoke point. In my kitchen, lard replaces any oil in a recipe. I absolutely love it.
I paid 15 dollars for 4 lbs. I just keep it in my freezer and dig a out a bit anytime I need some. FYI, 1 cup of lard weighs 7oz. Just so you don't need to melt it down to measure it.
