Mayfield Dairy I love factory tours and the Mayfield Tour lived up to my expectations. The modest entry fee covered an ice cream treat at the end. The tour was also very informative about how Mayfield makes and packages their products. Also, several pokes tops and they have a penny crusher machine.

We really enjoyed our tour and visit to Mayfield Dairy. I would highly recommend it to any visitors in Athens. The ice cream you get with your ticket at the end of the tour is worth it. Or you can just go there to buy ice cream.

I would highly recommend this tour to anyone! It's inexpensive and you get a huge double scoop of ice cream at the finish! Very clean facilities. Great area to eat outside.

This is a nice little place that I think most people have forgotten about or are just to busy to stop and see. I can remember coming here as a kid and it was always so crowded. Now it's just a few visitors here and there. It is about 15 minutes off the interstate but well worth the stop. You... More

Excellent tour thru the facility to see how the milk is processed. After the tour, you can enjoy a cone or dish of ice cream or a milkshake. The cones are HUGE! if you order a single, it is the size of a double at other ice cream parlors. I recommend the Moose Tracks, or if you like chocolate try... More

We went here with my kids and they both really enjoyed it. It's a neat little stop, with a relaxing stroll through how things are made. Plus the ice cream and is always an added treat.

Took our boys, ages 13 and 11, through this tour. Great little tour with fun ice cream at the end. Fun to watch the plastic bottles being made and filled with milk. Also ice cream being made.

I took my 3 great-grandsons ages 5, 8 and 11 hoping the tour part would hold their attention until we got to the ice cream part. The tour started with a video telling the history of Mayfield's and it was very interesting. The boys were fascinated watching the plastic jugs created and then being filled, labeled, etc. Unfortunately we went... More

This place is wonderful for family or field trips even for three year olds. Friendly staff, cheap prices on ice cream, grass area for kids and lounging around while eating your delicious ice cream. Tour was informative and interesting. Highly recommend.

I really enjoyed the tour through the plant. We went on a Saturday and the ice cream side of the plant was down and only got to see a short video about it. If you like to see manufacturing processes and the machines they use, it is a great place to see. You get to watch the machine make the... More
