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

We were so excited to check out the Mayfield Dairy farm that we had heard so much about. After eating at Hunter's cafe in downtown Sweetwater, we drove down to Athens, about 10miles, for the simple satisfaction of some homemade ice-cream! Upon arrival, we learned that the plant is closed to tours on Wednesdays during season for maintenance and upkeep.... More

The tour room was very busy, but it was worth the wait. It's a free tour through a milk and ice cream factory. They had lots of gifts to sell and ice cream. We really found it interesting and enjoyed our tour guide, she was very informed. The only complaint I had was no free ice cream at the end... More

I highly recommend this tour. Nice stop between Chattanooga and Knoxville. The tour cost 4 dollars but well worth the price. Its about one hour long but a nice video of the family history of the business. The guides are knowledgeable about how milk, ice cream are made at the plant. Walking through and seeing how those products are made... More

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
