Can anyone direct me to a plcae or places in the Ft Worth/ Dallas area for drums to store honey in.   Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated...

Is this for resale purposes? If not, but just for your own home use, I would look into a food factory for used barrels. Around here (in Georgia) I can get used food grade barrels for $5 each from the candy company.

Find your local coke or pepsi bottling plant and you have an endless source for used food grade barrels.

Bluegrass, you snatched my idea.  I have about 8 food grade plastic barrels.  It's easy to install a honey gate or petcock as they just screw in and they old over 50 gallons.
