If you ever find yourself north of I-85 around Chateau Elan and needed a sugar fix, then head on over to Mayfield Dairy. Although you won’t find any cows grazing (except for a giant cow statue in the middle of the front field), what you will find is a down-to-earth ice-cream parlor where a scoop of ice-cream costs a whopping $1.50. That’s a steal for the creamiest ice-cream around. Ice-cream bars are only $0.50 each.
Mayfield Dairy is a Tennessee company that opened their Braselton, Georgia ice-cream plant in 1997. They have been in business since the 1920s. The Braselton plant has a visitor center and tours are given every half hour. The huge visitor center houses the ice-cream parlor, a gift shop, and a small theater where each tour begins. Tours are given regularly and are free of charge.
The parlor only offers ice-cream by the scoop, ice-cream bars, and milk products. There are a few tables in the back of the visitor center by the theater where you can sit down and eat. Only cash or checks accepted.
