Do a little research as there are many sources available. The best price I pay is $75.00 for a 60 pound pail of wildflower from a local producer.

Where are you at? If you are in the MD, PA, VA area I suggest beefolks. More expensive, but the honey there, IMO, is just awesome and well worth it.

I have had hit or miss with Dutch Gold honey. Yes it is cheap, but one bucket I got was off and I had to toss a batch of mead, due to a nasty infection. I ended up using the rest of the bucket in beers and added the honey to the boil to kill off the stuff in it.

Check out the links in the thread Medsen provided. The best one for your question would be http://www.honeylocator.com IMO.
