“see where the milk is made!”

Mayfield Dairy Farms began when my grandfather, T. B. Mayfield, established Live Oak Farms in 1912. He purchased 45 Jersey cows and began to sell the milk to homes in Athens, Tennessee. In the early 20's, my grandfather built the first milk plant in our area capable of pasteurizing milk. He purchased a ten-gallon ice cream freezer in 1923 and began making ice cream. Since these humble beginnings, people in East Tennessee and the Southeast have enjoyed top quality Mayfield dairy products. Visit us at a Mayfield Visitor Center in Athens, Tennessee, or Braselton, Georgia. Browse the Mayfield gift shop and take a free and educational plant tour. It's fun for the family or a perfect field trip for schools, church groups and other organizations!

The tour lasts about 45 minutes and includes a ticket for one scoop of ice cream at the end of the tour. Not handicap accessible. The last tour starts at 4:00 - the kids loved it definitely worth the trip.

Great tour and you get a ticket for ice cream. (Must be able to ascend and descend stairs!!)

Go on the tour and enjoy. Wear good shoes as there is some possibility of wet floors during the tour.

You cannot take pictures due to the propriety nature of their business.

The Mayfield Dairy tour was a very informative and interesting experience. The plant tour was short and the experience is very affordable. The best part has to be the free ice cream you get at the end big cone or cup (your choice) and there's a history lesson for anyone interested.
