Hi! We’re Doug and Krista Dittman

Owners of Branched Oak Farm. We operate a family farm with the help of our sons, Nelson and Andreas.

As the stewards of this 240-acre dairy farm located just 15 miles north of Lincoln, Nebraska, we’re 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 our products are made with sustainable, certified organic methods, and with a positive impact on the environment.

Thank you for your interest in Branched Oak Farm. We hope you get the chance to sample some of our products and to stop by and see the farm.

What We Do

We produce Certified Organic Milk, Farmstead Cheeses, and have other farm products available in our Inconvenience Store (and area retailers) such  as Beef, Pork, Honey, and Eggs

Giving Back, and Growing

Branched Oak Farm has started making space for young farmers to launch ag entrepreneurship ventures on the farm.  Erin Frank and Margaret Milligan own and operate The Darlin’ Reds, a vegetable farm and CSA. Their CSA includes members in Lincoln and Omaha and they have expanded their fields to accommodate larger orders for restaurants. Drew Nelson, when done with his work as assistant cheese maker, maintains a small flock of ducks for eggs and manages the hogs that are sold in 1/4’s and 1/2’s to customers. This year a bee yard has materialized under the guidance of Kat Schiffler, honey connoisseur and bee enthusiast. The future holds promise for a wellness center to exist, which will include massage and herbal body products from plants grown on the farm. This enterprise is being created by Angie Kubalek, a Raymond native whose world adventures include Thai massage instruction in Thailand!

It is fabulous to be surrounded by these young ag business owners and it keeps us young at heart to watch their dream grow.

Past & Present Beginning Farmers

We are a family farm. We care about what we do and we hope it shows.
