Dairy & Frozen

Bassett’s Market believes that “Fresh is Best!” and supports this by purchasing products from local farmers and dairies. When you shop our Frozen and Dairy departments you will find:
  • Fresh eggs from Jacoby Farms, Oak Harbor, OH
  • Cheese and milk products, including ice cream, from Toft’s of Sandusky, and Smith’s from Sandusky and Orrville, OH

Our extensive yogurt section has flavors you might not have dreamed of. Looking for organic and meatless items? We have a section for that! We are always searching for that special “new” item for you. Stop in and see what we have today!

Also, just for you we have found Italian Master Craftsmen to develop and create Bassett’s very own Gelato that is second–to–none! Eight delicious flavors are here to highlight any table. If you have not yet experienced this frozen treat, here are some interesting facts about gelato: Bassett's Market sells awesome gelato!
  • While ice cream legally has a minimum of 10 percent fat, gelato is made with a greater proportion of whole milk to cream, so it contains closer to five to seven percent fat.
  • Gelato is churned at a slower speed than ice cream, so it’s denser because not as much air is whipped in. (Gelato contains about 25 to 30 percent air, while ice cream can contain as much as 50 percent air)
  • While ice cream is typically served frozen, gelato is typically stored and served at a slightly warmer temperature, so it’s not quite completely frozen.
  • Because gelato is more dense than ice cream, and since there’s not as much fat in it, it doesn’t coat the mouth in the same way, making the flavors more intense.

While milk may seem to be a simple matter, there’s actually quite a bit most people don’t know – especially why some milk is healthier for you than others. It’s the mission at Hartzler Family Dairy to educate you about milk, and why you can trust us to provide the healthiest, safest and tastiest milk around.
Superior Health Benefits
Hartzler Dairy milk at Bassett's Market is healthy

The health benefits of drinking Hartzler milk make it the smart choice for you and your family. Our cows are artificial hormone–free, and we rely as little as possible on mechanical processing. So what does this mean to you? Plenty…

Grass fed cows & unhomogenized milk make the difference!

Hartzler’s dairy cows graze freely in pasture and consume healthy, green grass during warm weather months. Milk from grass–fed cows has a higher content of vitamins and Omega–3s,as well as higher levels of conjugated linoleic acid, which have been found to have cancer–fighting properties. In addition, Hartzler milk is not homogenized, leaving milkfat globules intact to carry important nutrients like Vitamins A & D to the body.

Earlier experiments have shown that cows on a diet of fresh grass produce milk with five times as much of an unsaturated fat called conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) than do cows fed processed grains. Studies in animals have suggested that CLAs can protect the heart, and help in weight loss.

Low–temperature vat pasteurization preserves enzymes

Hartzler milk is enzyme–rich due to our low-temperature vat pasteurization process. These enzymes are crucial for digestion, as they assimilate nutrients into the body. Lactase, for example, converts lactose into energy and phosphatase assimilates calcium into our bones. We are the only dairy in Ohio to pasteurize milk this way. Our process kills harmful bacteria, in compliance with FDA rules, without harming enzymes. Because of this, many people who have been diagnosed as lactose intolerant can drink our milk!

No artificial hormones in our cows, means none in your milk!

Our cows are certified artificial hormone free and are fed from our own farms. They graze on pesticide and herbicide–free grass in warm months and receive pesticide and herbicide–free hays, grasses, and silage grown on our own farms during snowy winter months.

How To Drink Hartzler Milk
Grassfed Milk…the cream rises to the top! Whether you drink it straight from the bottle (we won’t tell your mom), or from a favorite glass, there’s one thing you need to do first: SHAKE BEFORE DRINKING! That’s because our milk is all natural and the cream rises to the top – that’s what makes our milk healthier and tastier than most!
