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!

EPISODE 78 // HANNAH ESCH OF OAK BARN BEEF

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.

It’s important to me that people can understand where their food is coming from because then they can fully appreciate the product.

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.

Shipping Day with Hannah - Mail Order Steaks and their packaging

May 03, 2020

This week I decided to do a little bit of the background on how shipping day looks and how we ship our family farms beef directly to consumers across United States!

To give you a little background we ship once a week on Mondays - to ensure that the product doesn't sit over the weekend and get stuck at UPS. It can potentially thaw, so we try to avoid the weekends at all costs. We use some:

  • Dry Ice
  • Insulated Coolers
  • And more to help keep the beef in great condition until it reaches you!
