When non-profit groups, or local organizations, such as fire departments, churches, and even schools, need to raise money for any number of needs, what do they typically plan? A fundraiser of course!
One of the top fundraising ideas is a large, well organized event. Such as a 5K, a formal gala, or a carnival or fair of some sort. Typically, it’s filled with games and activities attendees pay to participate in.
At most of these types of fundraising events, there is a silent auction to help further raise money. During a silent auction, there are a number of items donated to be auctioned off. There is typically a predetermined start and end to bidding time and with charity auctions, there is often a fixed starting bid amount. Attendees of the auction print their bids on a sheet of paper that is typically placed in front of the item and at the end of the bidding time, the highest bidder takes home their prize.
Oak Barn Beef has been quite the prize at silent auctions in the past. Bringing in a decent amount of funding. For a good reason too! Our Nebraska raised, dry aged beef is the best beef! Our process of dry aging is made for beef connoisseurs. It is beef that will melt in your mouth, with its unrivaled marbling! Can’t forget how tender it is too! A knife can slide through one of our steaks with ease and it will be the most enjoyable to eat because of this.
Our beef bundles are prized at fundraising events because of the practicality. Most people would spend their money easily to get their mouths on one of these tender, juicy steaks while supporting a good cause at the same time.
Some of the more popular bundles are:
25 Pounds of Ground Beef.
Perfect for grilling burgers, tacos, and casseroles galore.
Whether you are planning a fundraising event or would like to donate an item to be raffled or auctioned off, consider of our Oak Barn Beef bundles. It is sure to be the star of the event!

The experiences she had through the Engler Program and as a Nebraska Beef Ambassador revealed an opportunity in the beef industry. Esch, a senior animal science major, realized there was a disconnect between many producers and their consumers, and she decided to start her own farm-to-table beef supplier: Oak Barn Beef. It officially became a limited liability company in 2018.
