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.
