Hansen's Dairy Farm

In case you wondered... no, THIS Hansen family is not starting a dairy farm! We did however travel out to Hudson to the Hansen's Dairy farm that produces the delicious Hansen's milk and dairy products that our family consumes daily. It was Jaxon's good buddy, Mason's, birthday and we wanted to do something special with him. We decided an afternoon at the dairy farm would be special and fun! The six of us (Jen, Mason, Jillian, Jaxon, Austin, and myself) had a wonderful afternoon together! They offer a "hands-on" tour for a small $5 a kid and it includes milking a cow, feeding a baby calf, making butter, having ice cream, and feeding their pet wallaby's. It really is a pleasant place to visit... the clean, well organized, and very friendly and family oriented environment is a great place to take kids! Here's a glimpse of our field trip :)



The boys watching them clean the barn... twice a day they use a tractor to scoop the poop... yes, the boys were mesmerized by this process. I think it was their favorite part all day! And I'm not kidding!!


Milking a cow... Jaxon kept asking Mrs. Hansen when he could milk a cow... finally it came up on the tour!


Mason & Jaxon feeding the mini kangaroos. They ate right out of their hands. So cute!


Watching and listening so well to the details of just how that milk gets from a cow and into those plastic jugs! Pretty cool set-up!


Feeding a baby calf... reminded me of my childhood farm days!


Good friends!


One of the last things we did was make butter... lots of shaking that ended in a yummy snack for them :)

Happy 5th Birthday Mason! Hope you liked our special afternoon at the farm!!!

On a side note... we started drinking Hansen's milk when dairy products were so high. Hansen's was cheaper then! Since then Austin also switched to whole milk from breast-feeding. Some of you remember that Austin had a bad reaction to dairy products that I was consuming when I first nursed him. (blood in his diapers, extreme spit up, rash) I did not eat dairy for 3 months and then I slowly started consuming it again, but used Hansen's products. Austin can drink Hansen's milk just fine, but when we give him a different brand he tends to spit up this cottage cheesy type stuff for the next couple hours after he's had it. Anyways, Hansen's cows are raised with no added growth hormones and is non-homogenized. Austin can digest this so much better then homogenized milk. Anyways, we're so happy with their product that even now after dairy prices have gone back down we still spend the little extra to have such great quality milk! Thanks Hansen's Dairy!!!

Hi there!
I would like to burn a theme at this forum. There is such a nicey, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of ponzy-like structure, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For quite a long time, I earn money with the help of these programs.
I don't have problems with money now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I get now up to 2G a day , and I started with funny 500 bucks.
Right now, I managed to catch a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Visit my blog to get additional info.
