About Hansen's Farm Fresh Dairy
The Hansen family has owned and operated a farm located in Hudson, Iowa, for 150 years. Over these decades, we have prided ourselves on our farm-made dairy products. The four brothers of the Hansen family each manage different aspects of the farm's production: livestock care, crop management, creamery production, and product delivery. You can find the best local dairy products in Iowa at Hansen's Farm Fresh Dairy! Our milk is the best milk you can buy: it's non-homogenized, not commingled, and has no added hormones. Our pasteurization process best preserves the natural flavor and state of the milk. The other products we make are butter, heavy cream, cheese curds, and hard ice cream right on the farm. We sell our products at our two retail stores: Moo Roo, 3015 Kimball Avenue, Waterloo, Iowa; and Hansen's Outlet, 127 E. 18th St., Cedar Falls, Iowa. Our fresh dairy items may only be a few hours old when they reach your table!
If you're interested in seeing how milk gets from the farm to your table, you don't want to miss out on this season's farm tours. Come see the 350 cows on our farm, pet the kangaroos, and enjoy the farm-made ice cream treats! Give us a call to make your reservation today
One of the most interesting aspects of Hansen's Farm Fresh Dairy is the Tour Center, a monolithic dome structure built in 2012. Not many people can say they've seen the ins and outs of farm life. At our Tour Center, you can learn about the farm's history and how we take care of our cows. From March to November, we schedule tours of the farm for visitors to see the cows, goats, and kangaroos. We can accommodate up to 100 people. Hansen's Farm Fresh Dairy schedules two types of tours: Walk-Through and Hands-On.
The walk-through tour is a guided tour that takes you through the process of getting milk from the farm to your table. Enjoy a trolley ride around the farm, then see the calves, milking parlor, barns, creamery, wallabies, kangaroos, and goats, plus enjoy a dish of ice cream.

On this tour, you'll see everything in the Walk-Through Tour, but you'll also feed a calf; make homemade butter; milk a cow by hand; and pet the wallabies, kangaroos, and goats.
