Very interesting and informative. Great way to entertain the kids on the third snow day in a row! If you are sensitive to odors the burned plastic smell of the bottles being made could upset sensitive stomaches. Because of the poor weather weather the tour of the facility stayed inside and there was quite a few stairs. If you are... More

A great pit stop on the family trip. The tour isn't too long, but long enough to see and learn some interesting facts and history. You only physically see the packaging process. No real cows at this facility. Afterwards you get a super fresh scoop of ice cream that is very good. Eat lunch first though because no real food... More

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
