In 1915, Peter J. Oberweis found that he had too much milk and 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 WWI, 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.
Oberweis is still delivering bright and early and only using glass bottles. Oberweis does not add anything to the milk and the farmers do not use rBGH hormone on their dairy cow.
Oberweis is still family owned and operated. What’s more, they stick to Peter Oberweis’ lifelong commitment to quality and service.
Whether your order is delivered right to your door, or you visit one of their dairy stores, you can be confident that the quality and service will always be “Simply the Best.”
