Oak Barn Beef Founder

Welcome to our page! I am Hannah Esch, owner and operator of Oak Barn Beef. Currently, I am a 22 year old student at University of Nebraska - Lincoln majoring in Animal Science, but I aspire to work with Oak Barn Beef full-time when I graduate in May, 2020.

I am passionate about providing an experience for those who want to learn more about the hard working people in agricultural. I feel fortunate to be able to share  my own family farm's story through my adventures of working on the family farm.

When I am not studying or selling beef, I am playing with some type of animal, smiling ear-to-ear while talking to any and everyone, or using the laser engraver at the UNL Maker's Space.

I love to share what we are doing in our day-to-day operations on Instagram, so follow a long on our journey with the link below.

About Our Family

Don and Linda Esch have been raising cattle since their childhood in central Nebraska. They were blessed with three daughters, Jess, Allie, and Hannah (me), which they instilled hard working values into by teaching them how to work on the family farm.

While I am studying at the University of Nebraska, my mom and dad are the caretakers of our cattle in Unadilla, Nebraska. They are truly are the backbones of making Oak Barn Beef work, and a family farm really can't run without many helping hands. I am beyond fortunate to have two people who are always willing to give a helping hand to provide the best care for the family herd and help their daughter’s dream come true of providing an experience for those who want to learn more about farm life- from farm to fork!

1. Born & Raised on our family farm.

2. DNA Tested to ensure a premium beef product from the beginning.

3. Dry Aged at our Small Butcher, like a fine cheese or wine.
