do you have any small health food stores? Sometimes they will cary local honey.
maybe your local farmers market or even possibly a swap meet.
I have seen local honey at all of those.

Are there any yahoo bee keeping forums?

see if there are any local(for you) yahoo bee keeping groups.
If they don't have any; they may be able to tell you where to get it.

There is an organization : SOBA, the Southern Oregon Beekeeper's Association. You can find them at: http://www.orsba.org/htdocs/regionalbranch.php

They are a very helpful group of folks.
