“Perfecting milk since 1927”
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. They're still delivering bright and early. They're still using glass bottles, because they don't think milk should taste like plastic...just milk, pure and simple. They don't believe in adding anything unnecessary to our milk either. That's why none of their farmers use the rBGH hormone on their cows. They're still family owned and operated too. What's more, they stick to what got them here...Peter Oberweis' lifelong commitment to quality and service. Interested in seeing what happens behind the scenes at Oberweis?

Oberweis is really good ice cream, but not the best in the area. It's good for whenever you're feeling like a treat, but try and find a local place if possible.
Best ice cream in northern Illinois. This family owned business started out in a small factory in North Aurora. My friends started taking me there in the mid 1990's. They expanded and moved out here sometime after that. My favorite is their chocolate malt. In store it's served in a giant glass goblet with a cookie. Always a great place for dessert.
