Farm Story

Branched Oak Farm is owned and operated by Doug and Krista Dittman with the help of their sons Nelson and Andreas.  We are a family operation and stewards of this 240-acre dairy farm tucked away in the hills of Lancaster County known as the Bohemian Alps, just 16 miles northwest of Lincoln, Nebraska.

We are committed to preserving the land and creating farmstead products that are healthy and wholesome, free of chemicals, antibiotics, or hormones. We take pride in knowing that we use sustainable farming methods, that have a positive impact on the environment and we are proud to produce quality food for our local communities.

We take a great deal of pride in the milk we produce.  Great cheese requires great milk and to make great milk we need healthy cows and healthy soil.  All of these things make us happy to produce food for your table.

Holiday recipes from our farm to your table:
