Wholesale dairy in Southern Sonoma County or Marin County?

Hi everyone,

Wondering if there are purveyors/farms in Sonoma where you can buy dairy wholesale? I like to make my own yogurt, sour cream, ricotta, and butter, and sometimes buying the milk and cream in the grocery store to make it is more expensive (esp. for butter) than just buying the products outright; not to mention that most store-bought dairy is ultra pasteurized, which isn't ideal for cheese and yogurt making.

As it goes, my dairy products-making is a sometimes-hobby, but ideally, I'd like to make it a regular process for my household. I'm not trying to be a serious cheesemaker, merely someone who likes to go "back to basics" with some of my food products.

Thanks ahead of time.
