1. Superior flavor & freshness

  2. The best-tasting milk you can buy.

  3. Family-owned & local

  4. When our products get to your table, they may be only a few hours old. Our products are available at several grocery stores and restaurants within a 25-mile radius of the farm. Buying local is good for the economy and the environment.

  5. Just our cows

  6. The milk comes only from the cows in our closed herd — single source.

  7. No added hormones

  8. We do not inject our cows with rBST/rBGH.

Family member Beckett Hansen thinks our gallon jug is a convenient, single serving.

  1. Pasteurized

  2. We use a high-temperature,
    short-time (HTST) pasteurization process to best preserve the natural flavor of the milk.

  3. Creamline milk -
    ‘Shake, shake, pour!’

  4. Homogenization breaks down the molecules of milk, which destroys its natural state. Our milk is non-homogenized. Some people with lactose intolerance say they can consume Hansen’s products with no ill effects. The cream rises to the top, so remember to shake well before serving.

  5. Sell-by date

  6. The date stamped on Hansen’s products is a sell-by date, not an expiration date.

Hansen's Dairy would like to introduce our new line of beef, Wagyu-Holstein, available now for the first time.

The Waterloo Courier published an article on our new beef last week.

You may have never heard of the Wagyu beef breed, but you may have heard the more well-known term "Kobe beef." Real Kobe beef actually comes from the Tajima

New product: Hansen’s Wagyu-Holstein beef

bloodline of Japanese Black Wagyu cattle, and it must be raised, fed and slaughtered in the Hyogo region of Japan.

There is a lot of mislabeling of Kobe beef on restaurant menus in the United States. Fewer than 10 American restaurants are legally certified to sell "Kobe beef." None is ever sold at retail.

That being said, Wagyu beef is available in the U.S. and genetically carries many traits that make it a desirable choice for consumers.   

  1. More marbling than other beef, as evidenced by the tiny pinhead dots or spider webs of evenly dispersed fat seen in uncooked meat 

  2. Tremendous amount of intramuscular unsaturated fatty acids, especially oleic acid, which is responsible for flavor. These monounsaturated fats have a lower melting point, below human body temperature, so they literally melt in your mouth.

  3. Higher ratio of monounsaturated to saturated fatty acids than other beef 

Hansen's Wagyu-Holstein beef cows, who have a Holstein mother and a Wagyu father, are raised just like our dairy cows. All are born on the farm, housed with great care and low stress, fed the same diet, and raised without use of hormones or preventive antibiotics.

The hamburger is currently available in Hansen's Dairy stores for $8.00 per pound. If you are interested in purchasing other cuts of Hansen's Wagyu-Holstein beef, call Blake Hansen at 319-610-1530 to inquire about pricing and arrange pick-up. We have a limited assortment of steaks and roasts available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
