Personally I would try to find it locally. The price of domestic honey has been forced down by imported honey to the point where beekeepers actually make more money for renting their hives (for pollinating orchards, etc) than for selling the honey. The folks who sell their honey at farmer's markets invest a lot of time and money in packaging small quantities of honey to the public. I think you would find them open to selling you a lot of honey at a reduced price.
The other thing about buying local honey is you don't have to pay to have it shipped. 30 gallons of honey would cost a pretty penny to ship and shipping may actually cost more than the honey itself
