Description
Mayfield Dairy Farms began when my grandfather, T. B. Mayfield, established Live Oak Farms in 1912. He purchased 45 Jersey cows and began to sell the milk to homes in Athens, Tennessee. In the early 20's, my grandfather built the first milk plant in our area capable of pasteurizing milk. He purchased a ten-gallon ice cream freezer in 1923 and began making ice cream. Since these humble beginnings, people in East Tennessee and the Southeast have enjoyed top quality Mayfield dairy products.

Visit us at a Mayfield Visitor Center in Athens, Tennessee, or Braselton, Georgia. Browse the Mayfield gift shop and take a free and educational plant tour. It?s fun for the family or a perfect field trip for schools, church groups and other organizations!

Mayfield is one of the country?s leading dairy brands, and it is an important part of the Dean Foods portfolio. Challenging economic conditions have affected the entire dairy industry. We have had to make difficult choices to ensure that the Mayfield brand and Dean Foods as a whole remain competitive.



We recently made the decision to close the Mayfield Visitor Center in Braselton at the end of October. The center will remain closed at least through the end of the year while we evaluate whether we can operate it in a way that is less costly.



We enjoy sharing the Mayfield story with the visiting public through the interactive center, but its current operating structure is not economically sustainable. This decision was a difficult but necessary one that will help us continue to invest in the Mayfield brand and the hundreds of employees that produce and sell Mayfield products.

Thanks again for contacting the Consumer Affairs Department.

Sincerely,
Brian Laffler
Consumer Response Representative
