The very heart of the Braum operation is the Braum Family Farm located in Tuttle, Oklahoma. This 10,000 acre working family farm is home to Braum’s private dairy herd, milk barn, processing plant, bakery and warehouse distribution facility, truck maintenance facility, and water treatment plant.
Each day, we’re milking thousands of cows an hour, providing enough fresh raw milk for over one million glasses!
We’re the only major ice cream maker in the country to milk our own cows. This milk is used in our ice cream, bottled milk and other dairy products. And because Braum’s milk comes from our private dairy herd we know what goes into it and what doesn’t. We don’t use any growth hormones to stimulate milk production and we never add antibiotics to their feed. Braum’s dairy herd enjoys a 100% vegetarian diet including alfalfa hay, cottonseed and corn, with the majority of the feed grown right on our farm.
The fresh raw milk is transported several times a day for processing to the Braum’s Processing Plant located right across the pond. It’s here at Braum’s 260,000 square foot Processing Plant where we make and process milk, ice cream, yogurt, dips, cottage cheese, sour cream and other dairy products. It takes less than 36 hours from the time the cow is milked until it arrives at your neighborhood store. And, thanks to the unique way we process our Fat Free and Low Fat Milks, it’s better for you than grocery store brands with up to 50 percent more calcium, protein, and other essential vitamins and nutrients.
Every day at the Braum’s Bakery we’re busy making cookies, breads, ice cream cones, cinnamon rolls and more just for our neighborhood stores. Our bakery is open 24 hours a day – seven days a week! It’s midnight and while most of you are sleeping we’re just starting our day….mixing, baking and packaging all those delicious baked goods! Typically what we bake today will be delivered to your neighborhood store tomorrow.
The Braum’s Dairy isn’t your “typical” dairy. As a matter of fact it’s one of the largest dairy operations in the world and a showplace in the industry.
