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.


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

New product: Hansen’s Wagyu-Holstein beef

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 fats than other beef

  4. Unique high concentration of beneficial omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids


Hansen's Wagyu-Holstein cattle are mothered by a Holstein cow and sired by a Wagyu named World K Sanjirou, who has been said to be one of the most influential sires of the Tajima line. 


Hansen's Wagyu-Holstein beef cows 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.


If you are interested in purchasing Hansen's Wagyu-Holstein beef, call Blake Hansen at 319-610-1530 to inquire about pricing and arrange pick-up. The beef is not currently available in Hansen's Dairy stores. We have a limited assortment of steaks, roasts and hamburger available on a first-come, first-serve basis.


Jorgensen Plaza restaurants, located in the Western Home Community at 5307 Caraway Lane in Cedar Falls, are the first in the area that will serve Hansen's Wagyu-Holstein beef. In fact, they are having an Oktobeerfest event on Oct. 17 from 6 to 8 p.m. that will feature Hansen's Wagyu-Holstein beef in the five-course, seven-beer menu. Cost is $50 per person or $80 per couple, and you may RSVP by Oct. 8 to amy.dall@westernhome.org or 319-859-9324. For more information about the menu, click here.
