Decided to do your at last minute. Only $4.50 for adults and $3.50 for kids. Kids get to milk a cow while waiting for the tour to begin. Not a real cow of course. Short video presentation before your begin and you have to wear a hair net including the smallest children. You do get ice cream at the end... More

Mayfield's ice cream is yummy with generous scoops. Without the tour, one scoop is $2.50 and two scoops are $3.50. You can get many flavors that are not found in stores. We had done the tour previously but this time stopped specifically for ice cream. The tour is interesting and you get a discount on your ice cream. There are... More

The kids wanted to know how milk and ice cream was made so we decided to take a trip. We were all amazed at the process and truly enjoyed the learning process. This is another place to add to your travel list if your traveling with kids. They will simply love this place.

You get a nice little tour and view of the factory and there's a nice little area outside to enjoy ice cream afterwards and a gift shop.

The tour began with a short video which was the history fo the Mayfield family and how the operation evolved. Then there was a tour of the manufacturing plant made accessible through glass windows above the floor. Unfortunately, we were there in mid afternoon and production had already shut down and cleaning a had begun. Early in the day would... More

So glad we detoured off 75 to take this tour. After looking around the gift shop, we were shown a 8 minute video on the history of Mayfield then were taken on a tour of the facility. The tour guide was knowledgeable and it was interesting to see the process. However, there are a few things to share before you... More

A short drive off I-75 is the Mayfield Dairy Visitors center where you can see milk being processed and packaged. An ice cream tour is also available. They are not open 24/7 so make sure you call about tour times and days.

Priced perfectly. The tour was fairly simple but it was interesting especially for the kids. Go early because they do stop production and clean the machines late in the day. We were there at 3 and most production was over. The free ice cream at the end basically pays the tour cost. Would definitely recommend if you are nearby.

We had a nice visit to the Mayfield Dariy. The kids are 6 and 4, and the tour held their interest. Conveyor belts, Ice Cream packaging machines, noises, large vats, and busy. At the end of the tour is an ice cream worth the entry fee. We combined the visit with a pony ride at the Buttermilk Stables nearby. A... More
