Welcome to the Family!


Meet Hannah, Oak Barn Beef Founder

Welcome to our page! I am Hannah Esch and I am the owner and operator of Oak Barn Beef. Currently, I am a 21 year old student at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln majoring in Animal Science. I am passionate about putting a positive face to the farmer, and teaching more about the agricultural industry. Oak Barn Beef allows me to live out this passion!

When I am not studying or selling beef, I am playing with some type of animal, smiling ear-to-ear while talking to anyone 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 UNL, my mom and dad are the caretakers of our cattle in Unadilla, Nebraska. I go home as much as I can to help with our cattle (my favorite hobby), but my mom and dad are the backbones of the business. A family farm really can't run without the whole family, and we are fortunate to have five people who are willing to give a helping hand to provide the best care for the family herd, and deliver the best beef in the Lincoln and Omaha area.
