I bought some a couple years ago from Hartmann; they do offer orders under 100 on their retail side.
Caveat being that for individual plants -- it is more expensive than their wholesale side.
northeast MN, Zone 3b/4.

You will need 100 or more plants if you want to get enough fruit to do something with in your lifetime. Plants are under 12" tall and each plant produces damn few berries. Oh, and it you get back aches from bending over picking berries, you may not want very many plants.
