Time is running out on summer! Have you scheduled your farm tour yet? Bring your family and enjoy a trolley ride around the farm, milk a cow, bottle-feed a calf, pet our kangaroos (meet baby Rooby and mama Scooter, above), make butter, sample our products and eat ice cream.

For a thorough description of what you would experience, check out our tour video (filmed pre-COVID19). We currently require masks during certain areas of the tour that don't allow for social distancing.

Treats with a State Fair twist
Who else is sad that the Iowa State Fair is canceled? To remind us of our great state fair this month, at Hansen's Dairy Waterloo we'll be serving up some of the famous fair foods, with our own unique twist.

You can also sign up to win a pair of free cones in our weekly drawing just for writing down your favorite Iowa State Fair memory! Don't miss out!
Aug. 3-9: While we can’t put it on a stick, how about a Caramel Apple Sundae? Green Apple and Caramel Cup ice creams, topped with luscious caramel sauce, pecans, and whipped cream. Bring your own stick! $3.69
Aug. 10-16: Ever get the urge for a good grilled cheese? Combine Cedar Rapids’ Rustic Hearth Honey White bread, Wisconsin’s award-winning Decatur Havarti cheese, Hansen’s Dairy butter, and a waffle cone iron, and you get a Grilled Cheese Sandwich that deserves a blue ribbon. $2.50
Aug. 17-23:We’re celebrating National Soft Ice Cream Day all week with our Vanilla soft-serve ice cream piled high on a cake cone and topped with sprinkles galore. Remind anyone of the Midway? $1.49
Aug. 24-30: Perhaps the only way to make our homemade waffle cone better is to make it into an Ice Cream Street Taco ! This week our famous waffle cone is made into a taco shell, then filled with your choice of 3 mini scoops of ice cream and a topping of your choice. Have fun with the flavors! Here we did a fruit theme: Key Lime Pie, Orange Tiger Tail and Blue Raspberry, topped with strawberry sauce. Perfect for an evening snack and stroll! $2.39

Customer of the Month
The August Customer of the Month is Emsada Osmic of Waterloo.

Emsada loves all things ice cream and shopping local. Cows are even her favorite animal!

"My family would always go to Moo Roo in Waterloo in April for our first ice cream of the season," she said. "I love your products because they’re homemade."

Emsada is reminded of her home country of Bosnia and Herzegovina whenever she tastes Hansen's ice cream.

"I have eaten ice cream all over the world, and Hansen’s ice cream is my favorite (after the local ice cream shop in my hometown of Tomislavgrad)!" she said. "My favorite flavor is the summer flavor Lemon Squeeze. The sweet but sour taste is not found often in the United States, and not always done right, but you guys have it perfected!"

Thanks, Emsada! 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 August Cow of the Month is next in our series of cows in the 150-Pound Club.

Martha is one of our oldest cows at age 8. Her all-time high for daily milk production is 160 pounds — that's almost 19 gallons! She has produced a whopping 170,000 pounds of milk in her lifetime.

Martha looks awesome and is well-behaved. Her only fault is that instead of producing lots of heifers to carry on her legacy, she's given birth to six boys and only one girl!

We also like Martha's facial markings. Instead of a defined stripe down her nose, she has a "gradient" down the left side. It makes her look kind of old and gray, but she's had it since birth. :)
Cooking with Hansen's
This Garden Fresh Scramble is the perfect way to start your day or get a nutritious, delicious supper on the table quickly. It's also a great way to enjoy all those fresh summertime garden vegetables. You could add a meat of your choice, or swap out vegetables like zucchini, eggplant or even green beans. I wouldn't say no to a dollop of Westby's Sour Cream, either!

Remember to use this month's coupon on the salsa! For more simple recipes using local foods, check out my website at
