Description
In 1915, Peter J. Oberweis found that he had too much milk so he began selling it to neighbors. In essence, the family dairy business that now spans almost 100 years had begun.

The Oberweis family has been delivering milk to homes since 1927 when Peter bought a half partnership in the Big Woods Dairy. A few years later he bought the entire enterprise, renamed it Oberweis Dairy and his high school son Joe left school to help out. During the Depression refrigeration was inefficient. Milk could be safely kept only a few days thus necessitating daily home delivery.

During the war, when gas rationing was in effect, refrigeration had improved so delivery was changed to every other day. By the mid 1920's home delivery was being made in a Model T.

We're still delivering bright and early. We're still using glass bottles, because we don't think milk should taste like plastic...just milk, pure and simple. We don't believe in adding anything unnecessary to our milk either. That's why none of our farmers use the rBGH hormone on their cows.

We're still family owned and operated too. What's more, we stick to what got us here...Peter Oberweis' lifelong commitment to quality and service.

Over the years we've gone from the nostalgic horse and milk cart to the Model T to the milk trucks of the 50's and on to more modern home delivery trucks you see us use today.

We've built a bigger, better facility, expanded our product line and opened retail stores where folks can come in for our award-winning milk in glass bottles and our super-premium ice cream.

Whether we deliver right to your door, or you visit one of our dairy stores, you can be confident that our quality and service will always be "Simply the Best".

That's the way Peter Oberweis wanted it, and we're chips off the old block.
