Off the top of my head there is Randlea's Turtle Farm in Arkansas.

Also, I see babies available from time to time at reptile shows in SC.

A guy in my herp club breeds them. Last year he hatched out over 80 juvies which the state of Illinois bought all of. I can try to see if he can sell them, and if he has any.
