In 1933, Henry H. Braum (Bill Braum’s Father) leased a converted house and used it as a small butter processing plant located in their hometown of Emporia, Kansas. A year later, the owner built a new 25×80 foot building so Henry moved production to that facility. Later, milk processing was added. Throughout childhood, Bill Braum helped his father with the family business learning every aspect of the operation.
