Branched Oak Farm

Locale ID NE5037

Run by Doug and Krista Dittman


We operate a family farm with the help of our sons, Nelson and Andreas. As the stewards of this 230-acre dairy farm located just 15 miles north of Lincoln, Nebraska, weíre committed to preserving the land and creating farmstead products that are healthy and wholesome, free of chemicals, antibiotics, or hormones. Branched Oak Farm, tucked away in the hills of eastern Nebraska known as the Bohemian Alps, started when Doug set up shop on his own in 1991. After he married Krista and she moved with him to the farm in 1999, they began raising grass-fed beef and free-range chickens. It wasn't long before the folks already buying chickens, eggs and beef asked for milk. This led Doug and Krista to buy some Jerseys, build a dairy facility, and start milking. But it didnít stop there. After some discussion with their friends, Charuth and Kevin Loth, they decided to join forces and start making cheese. Charuth had goats and would produce goat cheese under another label, ShadowBrook Farmís Dutch Girl Creamery, and Krista would produce cow milk cheese under the Branched Oak Farm name.
