Photo of the Month
The happy little guy in this photo (snapped by a Waterloo Schools staff member) is one of more than 700 Waterloo kindergarten students who visited our farm in May as part of the Waterloo Schools LifeLab Program. We are proud to be one of 10 LifeLab community partners.

The program theme for kindergarteners this year was farm and agricultural experiences. The goal was to expose young students to local farms and teach them about animals, crops, products and farm technology.

Students got to pet our dairy calves and cows, see our milking parlor and learn how milk gets from our farm to their table. They were also treated to Hansen's ice cream!

June is Dairy Month
While we sing the praises of dairy year round, during June Dairy Month we like to shout it from the rooftop. Or, in the case of this photo, from the pond on our farm.

Cow's milk is nature's nearly perfect food. It delivers 13 essential nutrients needed for good health. Milk also has been shown to be more hydrating than water. GO MILK!

So whether it's breakfast at home or lunch on the pond, WONDERFULLY NUTRITIOUS MILK is the perfect partner for ANY meal. (Pardon all the capital letters. We get really excited about milk!)
Meet the Moo Crew
Two years ago, a chance encounter with Delivery Manager Brent Hansen led Thomas White to ask a simple question: "Are you hiring?"

A week later, Thomas was on a Hansen's Dairy delivery truck moving crates of milk, heavy cream, cheese curds, butter and ice cream.

Today, Thomas remains a valued member of our distribution team, delivering our products throughout the Cedar Valley and beyond.

His favorite part of the job is making connections with people at the businesses we serve. Thomas also has special connection with one of the animals on our farm. Find out which one in this video.
Customer of the Month
Our May Customer of the Month is the Decker family of Hudson.

"We're so excited to be selected!" said Becky Decker.

The Deckers have been buying Hansen's products since they moved to Iowa nearly a dozen years ago.

"Our favorite products are milk, ice cream and cheese curds," Becky noted. "We have toured the farm on many occasions, both on field trips for school and hands-on tours with family from out of state."

Thanks, Becky! Customers of the Month receive a $5 gift certificate to use at our stores and two free hands-on tour passes to the farm (a $40 value). You could be chosen by filling out an entry form at our stores or through your comments on our Facebook, Instagram and Twitter pages.
Cow of the Month
Our June Cow of the Month is aptly named Summer. She's 3 years old with a sunny and bright personality.

"She's a young, strong cow who enjoys life," says Herd Manager Blake Hansen.

In the milking parlor Summer shines as a natural leader among the herd -- in disposition AND milk production.

She leads her fellow milkmaids into the parlor with a confident stroll. There, she produces a whopping 100 pounds of milk per day, crushing the 80-pound average of her herd mates. Shine on, Summer!
Cooking with Hansen's
It's asparagus season in Iowa! Here's a super simple recipe you'll return to again and again. The green garlic used here is not as strong as regular garlic and pairs nicely with parmesan cheese when roasted. Click here for a printable recipe.
