Where can I find non-cultivar Taxus baccata in the Northeast?

I would like to plant a formal hedge of non-cultivar English yew in northern New Jersey. I can't seem to find a source for this shrub in the US. My goal is to have a 5'-6' privacy screen within four to five years. I like the history behind the European/English yew, so I am reluctant to plant any hybrids.

If you have deer, don't even think of it. It's their favorite winter food.

Thanks for the advice. I'll try in the conifer forum. I was thinking of using an electric fence to keep away the deer.
