On our way back from Pigeon Forge, we decided to detour a little to Athens TN and visit Mayfield Dairy Farm. Now, you won't see any REAL cows here, but you will get a nice little tour to see what it's like to package milk and ice cream in a factory. It was a great little field trip for my... More

We had a lot of fun on the tour. Very informative. Learned about ice cream and milk. Have to wear hair nets and turn off phones. No pictures allowed. Free scoop of ice cream at the end. Lots of fun!

Ice cream is fabulous plus they have flavors not available in stores. They have special milk shakes this summer and tried several of those and they were really good and different. Good atmosphere and service!

This tour starts off with a ten minute video and then your taken into the production plant where you see how they manufacture and produce their milk and ice cream. The tour guide provides detailed information of each process and if you have any questions they are very informative. I did notice they have limited access for anyone with a... More

Date Visited: Saturday, August 23, 2014 Pros: Great ice cream and setting, friendly people Cons: Watch out for the smells! Warning – if you want to take the tour on a Saturday, get here between 10 and 1, and don’t expect to see ice cream being made. After having said that, make sure you stop here. You can just come...

I was not sure what to expect when I went to tour this factory but it was interesting. I was able to see how the plastic milk jugs are made and filled and how ice cream is packaged. At the end of the tour, I was able to enjoy a scoop of ice cream before I headed back out on... More

This was a very good tour lots of good information. Because I have been a city girl it was good to see how milk was bottled and ice cream packed. Sometime they do not do the ice cream part so you should call to see what they will do on day you go. At the end of tour you get... More

I guess they are run by someone else and now you purchase ticket. Adult $4.50 which includes and ice cream. Like it better when more ice cream was produced at this plant. Still very interesting.

On an impulse, we visited the Mayfield Dairy, watched an introductory video and took a tour of the plant. What an interesting experience, from beginning to end. We got to watch their signature yellow milk bottles being made, filled, labeled and capped, as well as school lunch-size cartons (and chugs) being formed and filled. The history of the Mayfield family... More
