February Treats of the Month
If you put granola on ice cream, does that make it healthy? 🤔Maybe not, but it does make it delicious! Our February Treat of the Month is an Apple Crisp Shake. We blend Apple Pie Ice Cream with caramel sauce, then top it with whipped cream and O’Brien’s Own Almighty Almond granola. Only $3.69 all month at both stores.
Love is in the air, and in the ice cream! If you’re planning on a date night soon, make sure to stop by Hansen’s Dairy stores for your dessert. Our Banana Split is three scoops of ice cream in a waffle bowl, banana slices, three toppings, whipped cream and a cherry on top. It’s perfectly shareable! Now through Valentine’s Day, only $4.99.

Customer of the Month
The February Customer of the Month has been buying Hansen's milk since we first opened.

"We fell in love with it and only buy your milk," says Janine Knapp of Hudson. "Hansen’s milk reminds me of the milk I drank growing up on a dairy farm in northeast Iowa. Hansen’s Dairy products taste good and are good for us."

Janine and her husband, Paul, like the cheese curds, hamburger and 1% milk, and enjoy the variety of other products offered at the stores as well. "We appreciate the way the Hansen family supports the community," Janine said. "We feel it is important to support local businesses."

Two of Knapp's grandchildren have toured the farm, and still talk about making butter and eating ice cream. "We plan to take three of our grandchildren on a farm tour this summer," she said.

Thanks, Janine! 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 February Cow of the Month is part of an empire we've built on our farm — with names of Star Wars characters!

Lando is 4 years old and has had three calves. She's a heavy producer with a sweet and gentle personality. She loves getting milked and is always one of the first cows in the milking parlor. She milks 140 pounds a day, well above average!

Since we don't ever duplicate names in the herd, the Star Wars saga provides unique name ideas. Along with Lando, we've had Anakin, Ewok, Jabba, Jawa, Jedi, Lightsaber, and twins Luke and Leia.
