Rural Revival Podcast: Love for entrepreneurship, personal journey, and rural communities

The amazing opportunity to be on Rural Revival's podcast came to me in the very first month of 2020. I had a BLAST talking to Danna about all things entrepreneurship, personal development, and my love for rural communities.

I also enjoyed showing her around my favorite building on campus- Miller Hall, home of the Engler Entrepreneurship Program! Here's a recap of what is on Rural Revival's site. If you want to go directly to their page, click right here!

This week on the podcast we’re talking with Hannah Esch of Oak Barn Beef in Unadilla, Nebraska (pop. 311). Hannah started Oak Barn Beef to sell her family’s beef direct to consumer, and has built this business from the ground up while she has been a full-time student at the University of Nebraska - Lincoln. She’s talking about all the things she’s learned along the way — like educating customers and working with butchers and how they differentiate their prouduct — plus how she landed her dream internship with Five Marys Farms.


College is the best time to start a business because of all the relationships that you have and all the people who are willing to help you as a student.
— Hannah Esch

You’ll be impressed with Hannah and how she has made the most of the opportunities available to her as a student. We wish her all the best and are excited to follow along and see how she continues to grow this business when she graduates.

Every farm is unique, so by sharing that story, people know their farmer. And hopefully they trust you and support you and want to buy your beef because of knowing that.
