See where Mayfield's ice cream and milk are made. It was interesting to learn about the process and history of the Mayfield Dairy. You also get a free scoop of ice cream!

This is an excellent road stop that is very informative. You learn a lot about how milk gets from the farm to your refrigerator. You also can appreciate the Mayfield namesake which was kept by the corporation in the 90's. Best of all, there's ice...More

Mainly indoor. If there is someone in the group that cannot do stairs they will have to go outside for a short distance.

There are no live animals at the plant. They do have a couple of "fake" cows-one indoors that you can "milk" and one outdoors that children love to climb on. Just check the outdoor cow if the sun is out, it can get hot.
