Braum’s Dairy Farm: March 22 - 23, 2017


Braum’s Dairy Farm, Tuttle, OK  

Day 1: Today we find ourselves headed south to OKC. Our first stop is the American Banjo Museum. This world-class museum is home to the largest collection of banjos in the world with more than 400 instruments. Lunch will be included at the museum while we enjoy some live banjo entertainment! Then we will stop at the Oklahoma City National Memorial with a special visit by either a survivor of the bombing or a first responder. It is a moving experience to hear firsthand some memories of that horrible day. A ranger presentation will be given outside of the memorial so we can understand the significance of the memorial. You will also have some free time to explore the exhibits inside the wonderful museum. Overnight in OKC area.

Day 2: This morning we head for Tuttle for our tour of the Braum’s Dairy Farm processing plant and the bakery. Our first stop will be at the visitor center for an excellent film about the farm. Next we visit the plant to see how the yummy creations go from milk to the products we all love. The farm covers 15 square miles and has self-sufficient processing, water, and waste treatment facilities. The milking of the cows is continual, stopping only periodically to clean the barn and equipment. It is one of the largest dairy operations in the world, milking thousands of cows an hour and providing enough fresh raw milk for over one million glasses! Keep in mind that the public is not allowed in the barns. Following our tour of the processing plant and bakery, and of course ice cream samples, we will depart Oklahoma and return to Yoder.

Includes 1 breakfast and 1 lunch
