Homemade Pie Capital Of Minnesota

Braham is a small, friendly community located within one hour of both the Twin Cities metro area and St. Cloud, just off of Hwy 65.

The City has a 25-acre industrial park with utilities available. Braham offers very competitive and attractive lot prices, making it easier for businesses to cashflow their new developments. 

Braham is an excellent place to raise a family or retire, since it is close enough to commute to the metro area and surrounding cities with superstores, but distant enough to be in a quiet, uncongested, and safe environment with local police and fire departments. Braham also has parks that include a skateboard park and mountain bike park, local library link, local elementary and high schools, several churches, and senior housing.

Local companies include high-speed wireless communications, electric utilities, manufacturing and general businesses.

Braham offers tourism too, being proclaimed as the "Homemade Pie Capital of Minnesota" by Governor Rudy Perpich back on July 20, 1990. Braham quickly gained national and international recognition with the proclamation, and captures tourism with its annual celebration of "Pie Day" the first Friday in August with pie events, crafters, vendors, arts, music, songs, dancing, quilt show, and, of course, pies.
