Successful celebration in Cedar Falls
The Grand Reopening event in June at our Cedar Falls store was a huge success!

This photo is our favorite of the day, showing an
all-hands-on-deck hustle from our staff as patient and kind customers waited in line for a hearty lunch. We served more than 450 people!

It was a great day, and we're thankful for everyone who stopped in to celebrate with us! For more photos from the day, check out our Facebook post.
Customer of the Month
Our July Customer of the Month is Lauren Riensche.

Lauren first visited our farm on an FFA trip more than 10 years ago as a high school student.

During the tour, she sampled cheese curds, ice cream and butter. Today, she shops at our Tour Center retail store.

"I enjoy taking my urban friends and colleagues to experience this real, working dairy when I get the chance," Lauren says. "I'm actually lactose intolerant, pretty odd for a dairy customer of the month, but the process Hansen's uses to make their ice cream makes it easier for us dairy-challenged folks to eat it. That feels like a big win, because what's summer without ice cream?"

We agree! Summer isn't complete without Hansen's ice cream!

Thanks, Lauren! 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
Our July Cow of the Month is one of the feistiest ladies in the barn.

The lively Lightsaber can be
a bit of a handful, Herd Manager Blake says.

She was born July 6, 2019, (happy 3rd birthday, Lightsaber!) and has had one calf -- a bull. Her second calf is due in September.

Lightsaber's favorite pastime is avoiding people, "always trying to find a way to escape from us humans," Blake jokes.

The force is with Lightsaber at milking time, however. She's shines bright in the parlor, always eager and willing to cooperate with the milking crew.

"When it comes to milking, she knows exactly what to do," Blake says.
