We brought 4 children ages 8 and under to tour the ice cream factory.We were the only ones on the tour, but our tour guide took such time and care with us, She made our little group feel very important! We learned a lot, had huge ice cream cones (free!!!), and left singing, "we all scream for Mayfield ice cream!"... More

If you have ever wondered how big dairy companies manufacture ice cream, then you ought to check out Mayfield's Dairy farm & Visitor center. They have tours of the facility, a gift shop, and a small ice cream shop where you can taste their products. Definitely worth a visit! Been there many a time!

Athens was great to visit! Loved seeing all the sites and being in downtown Athens! Mayfield Dairy was right across the street from our hotel, very convenient and the kids loved it.

This was a really fun tour!! We were able to watch the ice-cream being packaged, the milk containers being made, and the milk being filled and sent down the assembly line. At the end you get some amazing ice-cream! For our family of 6 we paid about 20 dollars, it was well worth it, the kids loved it and my... More

Very good ice cream. Also, the tour of the bottling process is fun for adults and children alike. A fun hour if you are visiting the Athens area.

Gotta love this....ice cream and shakes who doesn't want that. Nice staff and fast service. They also have tours but we've never been on one here. I prefer the tours with the cows and cheese but here there isn't. But different assortment of flavors of ice cream and shakes and good size portions especially when you are in the mood... More

We enjoyed our trip to Mayfield farm. It was a family trip with my daughter, husband and grandparents. It's a family friendly place and at the end of our tour we got to have some delicious Mayfield ice cream! BTW it was not a little scoop it was a big serving. You can't beat the price you pay for the... More

Nice tour of Mayfield Dairy Farm. Tour includes a short 10 minute video giving the history of Mayfield's, a walking tour of a portion of the production plant and then a scoop of ice cream to complete your visit. The visitor center has a gift shop, concession stand, and a nice patio area to enjoy your ice cream or have... More

Drove 5 miles off the interstate to take a tour only to find out no tours are given on that day. Should put that on the billboard. Once inside, typical trap to get you to buy something for your kid.
