Guest Blogger – Things to Do: Hansen’s Dairy Farm Tour

Are You Looking For An Experience? Hansen’s Dairy Has You Covered

Experience: Knowledge or practical wisdom gained from what one has observed, encountered, or undergone.

According to, that is the definition of experience. For me, an experience is trying something new, learning something new, and accomplishing something new. It’s about going places and encountering things in a way that you never have before. Experiences can happen anywhere, near or far, and are always available for you to have. They don’t always fall into your lap, sometimes you’ve got to make the first move, but experiences are all around us. They’re just waiting for you to reach out and grab them.

If any of the above struck a chord, then keep on reading. I’ve got an opportunity for you that you’ll never forget. If you’re looking for an experience, then look no farther than Hudson, Iowa. Just a short drive outside of town, down a typical gravel road, lies a not-so-typical dairy farm. Add dairy cows, wallabies, a creamery, and a tour center, and you’ve got a potent mix of experiences waiting to happen. Hansen’s Farm Fresh Dairy farm is a farm like no other. With a creamery on-site, you get to see the entire process of how milk makes it from the cow to your table. You can even try your hand at milking a cow, feeding a calf, and making butter and a recently added trolley ride and tour center will make your tour the complete experience.

If I still haven’t got you hooked, give me a few more sentences. As an intern here at Hansen’s Dairy, I can honestly say that I am having one of the best summers of my life. What the Hansen’s have going on here, making and selling a sound product while also fairly serving its customers and community, is remarkable. And for those who have never visited a dairy farm, taking a tour and seeing how milk makes it to your table is truly an eye-opening experience. I would recommend a visit to Hansen’s Dairy to literally everyone, big or small, because there really is something for everyone at Hansen’s Dairy.
