Good beef tallow?

Besides US Wellness Meats, who seems to be out of tallow for the time being, are there any reputable sources for tallow. I simply don't have the time to render my own. Do you think I could ask a Whole Foods butcher?

Yeah, ditto above- find a local grass-based farm and you should be able to get the fat for dirt cheap (no one else wants it). You can render it yourself in a crock pot, it takes little hands-on time.

I would try checking your local Farmer's Market to see if there are any local grass-fed meat farmers in your area who might be able to provide a local supply for you. I know that in our area, even though we don't have a lot of farmer's markets, we do have some farmers in the area who raise grass-fed meat, and from whom I've been able to order tallow.

USWellnessmeats is out of beef tallow right now. Found this website and just placed an order! Beef tallow is all they sell. http://fatworks.wazala.com

I get mine from Dey Dey's Best Beef Ever. They are local here in California, and I just love them!

I expect the butcher would give you fat, and you'd still have to render it; the process can be simplified by putting your fat into a covered pan and the pan into the oven, set at 200-250*F and just leave it over night. pour off the 'juice' in the morning, and set into fridge to chill. I would worry more about the source, than the processing. HYH!
