Direct from Danzeisen Dairy Farm

Danzeisen Dairy is a local, family run dairy farm with over 50 years in Phoenix, Arizona. Our dairy is the first local, Phoenix dairy to offer glass bottles to grocers within the Arizona market – direct and fresh from a local dairy farm only 10 miles from downtown Phoenix, Arizona. Danzeisen Dairy offers the freshest, best tasting milk direct from the farm to your local grocer.

OUR FAMILY

Descending from a rich family history of farming, the Danzeisen Dairy has been a part of the dairy business in Phoenix for generations. Neil and Gertrude Viss, grandparents of present day owners, moved to Phoenix in 1959 from Southern California to rent the first dairy of the family business near 51st avenue and northern. They later built another dairy on 75th avenue and Broadway in 1967, and a second dairy was purchased less than a mile east at 67th avenue and Broadway. Gail, their oldest daughter, met and married Clayton Danzeisen. Together they have four children and thirteen grandchildren. Kevin, the oldest of the four, is now the general manager of dairy operations. Brett, the third son, is in charge of transportation and harvest for the dairy. In 2002, the name of the dairy was changed to Danzeisen Dairy.

OUR FARM

“We take care of the cows, the cows take care of us.” This philosophy is the most important element of success for Danzeisen Dairy. Values such as freshness, family, and integrity translate into an authentic quality product. As a result of these core values, Danzeisen Dairy has flourished as a company and has now developed a new line of premium, family-owned product for Phoenix right from its own back yard. Our Holstein and Swiss cows are milked three times daily and all calves are raised on the farm. All cows and heifers are fed an alfalfa-based diet balanced with the perfect amount of proteins and minerals. We do not use any growth hormones. A specialized veterinarian visits the dairy weekly to monitor the health of the cows. A cow nutritionist checks the feed at the dairy every month to ensure the most balanced and healthy diet for the cows.

OUR FUTURE

At Danzeisen Dairy, we have a passion for our livestock that we want to pass onto our family for years to come. We want to invest more and more into the comfort of our cows – they take care of us in return! No plastic is used in any of our product. Our milk comes straight from our dairy and gets bottled into ice cold glass containers to ensure pristine freshness and the best taste possible. We know that the best way we can invest more confidently into our cows is to provide the best tasting, highest quality products directly to our valued customers and the Phoenix community.
