I have driven past this place a million times and ever since my daughter was little I kept telling myself we would take a trip up the road to Mayfield Dairies and do a tour. They have a little gift shop and cafe serving their famous ice cream. I just learned that the plant is closing. They have already stopped doing tours. Luckily my kids got to tour during a field trip in elementary school but sadly I never made it. The ice cream parlor closes for good the end of this month and the rest of the plant this fall. The middle school is not far from the dairy so I decided to surprise Brody with ice cream after open house as a summer-is-almost-over treat.
I am sad I never got to see the inside but apparently it made an impression on my son because he told me all about it. I don't even remember him going on a field trip here but apparently both my kids went. They were able to see exactly how the ice cream is made and packaged. There is even a mechanical cow you could milk. Maybe when it shuts down I can take a peak around.
