I'm wondering where I could get a branding iron made with our farm logo. Any suggestions?

I got one from Gearheart industries and have been happy with it. Made in the US. I don't use mine a lot so I got one of the models that needs to be heated up. They have electric ones as well.
Handy online designer allows you to quickly make up and submit your own basic designs with templates, which is what I used as I wasn't looking for anything fancy. You can submit your own artwork though and possibly work with them to have them create what you need.

What is your brand/logo?  If it isn't too complicated, a local welding fabrication shop could be a possibility.

This is what I was thinking, might be cheaper this way. Plasma cutter job

Perhaps a skilled welder could laydown a bead that made your logo if it's very basic or stylized to allow less fine detail? Sometimes simple is most emphatic.
Branding iron style or large solder iron type of tool with a small flat steel plate holding the design. 
It could the be smoothed flat using a sander and maybe require some small burr clean up's of wide spots in the bead. 
I've used my art class monogram/initials via a high quality woodburning pen for many years as a lifelong woodworker. At times I add a note if appropriate on the wood source and typically date a project for posterity's sake.

A gentleman from one of my woodworking forums has turned his hobby into a successful business.  No connection, but he does great work, as you can see from his gallery.
