Photo of the Month
Did you catch the #Elfabet on our Instagram page in December? Each day leading up to Christmas, our resident elf, Punkin, taught our fans about life on the farm using each letter of the alphabet. He had a great time before he had to go back to the North Pole! If you missed it, check it out here.

Customer of the Month
The January Customer of the Month is Lorita Horkheimer of Hazleton.

Lorita loves the taste, freshness and pure goodness of the food available at Hansen's Dairy stores. It reminds her of growing up on a farm in Prairie Du Chien, Wis.

"We had fresh milk, eggs, chickens and meat to eat with our fresh vegetables out of our garden that my mother would freeze and can. I helped weed the garden back in the days of good, fresh homegrown food," she said.

She appreciates fresh dairy products without additives and preservatives. Her favorite Hansen's product is the white cheese curds.

"We had milking cows, and I loved getting the fresh cheese curds off of the milk truck that were still warm and squeaky," she said. She likes to eat Hansen's curds fresh or toasted under the broiler.

"I love your Raspberry, Mint, and Heath ice creams, and the Big Sky Lemon Poppyseed Bread as well," she added.

Thanks, Lorita! 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 $30 value). You could be chosen by filling out an entry form at our stores or through your comments on our Facebook and Twitter pages.
Cow of the Month
The January Cow of the Month is a powerhouse milker.

Denmark is 5 years old and currently milks 130 pounds a day. She is nearing 100,000 pounds of milk in her lifetime! Herd manager Blake Hansen says it's hard to imagine where she keeps all that milk, because she has a fairly small udder.

Denmark also has very unique markings. Her eye patches have been salt-and-pepper-colored since birth, and they are getting more pronounced with age. Just another reason she stands out in the crowd!
Cooking with Hansen's
Happy New Year! Are you looking for a creamy comfort food that's also light and versatile? Try this Alfredo Soup! I like to use sausage for the added flavor, but you can use almost any meat, including leftover ham, turkey or roast. You could also add a variety of vegetables like green beans, carrots, cauliflower, or spaghetti squash. Enjoy!
