  • This is a neat place. I didn't realize that Mayfield was made in TN. We visited the shop and bought some ice cream, that was so good. They had several different kinds to choose from so it was hard to ...  more »

  • Was a very good experience and would recommend taking the children or just going with friends or by yourself. If possible I would try going during the week while production is running to see all the machines alive and active. It is like any other corporate factory tour, it give you the rich history of May field, and will let your roam freely about the gift shop, and when its your time for the tour they will take you to a room to see the introduction to Mayfield film. Where they will also pass out hairnets for the factory tour. The tour itself is amazing, and the tour guides are very very knowledge about the plant, the processes, and the history. The tour itself is 4$ per person, but that is really to cover the cost of the free Ice cream they provide at the end. Its a great place to take the kids for a short and sweet tour and a fun thing to do on the weekend. Would highly recommend!
  • They offer tours, gift shop goodies, and ice cream. Take the tour, you get a free ice cream sandwich. Whenever I visit my grandparents in Athens it's a tradition to stop by at least once
  • If you are trucker picking up or delivering stuff there they will work fast on your load. While you are waiting do not miss the opportunity to take a tour of the plant. You will get huge ice cream in the price of the tour. The ice creams are very good. Everybody was so nice over there.
  • Lots of fun things for the kids to do in the fall. We went for the corn maze and hayride. Both of which left me disappointed. The corn maze trails were so poorly marked we started in the large maze and walked out of the small. The corn was only about 3 feet tall so really quick and boring. I don't know if the giant weeds are there to mark off trails or what but if you like corn mazes give this one a pass. Next was the hayride. A quick circle around a smallish pumpkin patch. I'd say it was about a 10 minute ride at best. The rest of the stuff my kids loved but then it's really not hard to please a 7 and 3 year old. It's ok but there are better harvest activities not too far away.
  • The tour is fun & our tour guide, Brook, was wonderful! You get ice cream at the end that's covered in the admission price I guess. Very affordable & you can relax outside to eat your ice cream after the tour. Heads up, there are no actual farm parts, it's all about the packaging side of things!
