I have tried but with no luck.

Still open for suggestions on places people here buy from.

Lovett Vinyard helped me find something for you :

There is a homebrew shop in Athens, Called the Athens Do-it Yourself shop that sells raw honey. You bring the container and get what you need. (740)594.2349

Fred Burdell sells honey by the quart off St Rt 325 around Vinton, OH. Last year he sold it for $7/quart.

He does occasionally but not always. Also i think it was 2.5-3$/lb and I didn't find it to be the best tasting honey.

I truly appreciate your help though!

Awhile back I seriously looked into a bulk honey buy. You don't really hit much in the way of cost savings until you buy a 55 Gallon drum. At that level I was quoted $1.25/lb. But that's a serious amount of honey.
