Help me science! Finding bulk sources of lactobacillus

I'm looking for bulk sources of lactobacilli to use in fermenting vegetables, specifically L. plantarum, L. mesenteroides, and P. acidilactici -- help me science?

Caldwell's veg starter is sold out all over the place, not to mention spendy when you're looking to do gallons and gallons... According to this site
Caldwell’s use their own unique, scientifically-developed starter culture that makes the fermentation process more reliable, and produces consistent and beneficial results. It contains three bacteria specifically suited for fermenting vegetables: L. plantarum, L. mesenteroides, and P. acidilactici*.
So why not find and mix my own? (Well, assuming some kind of Food Safe Bacteria-R-Us exists?)
