    Hi Christina-

    We are in Minnesota. Afraid my geography for this part of the world is a bit hazy, I'm a recent transplant, lol! We'rein Bertha, which is in Todd County, about 150 miles NW of the Twin Cities. Not sure if this qualifies as close or not!!

    Try the Honey Locator:

    Looks like most of the ones listed are bulk/wholesellers, but there's one in
    Parker (is that near you?) that looks promising.

    You could also try contacting the SD State Beekeeping Assn, I'm sure they would be happy to put you in touch with a beekeeper near you:
    Judy Gulleson
    SD State Beekeeping Assn
    Box 52
    Britton, SD 54430
    Fax 605-448-5163 (sorry, no phone or web link)

    Another contact is Bob Reiners at the SD State Ag Dept (he's the state bee guy): bob.reiners@state.sd.us
