BRASELTON -- On Friday, Mayfield Dairy Farms announced the company's visitor center in Braselton will reopen next month.

The center has been closed since last fall while the company looked for ways to make it work financially.

"We are thrilled to be able to open the Braselton Visitor Center again," said Mary Williams, Mayfield General Manager. "As we indicated last fall, we were eager to reopen if we could find an economically viable way of doing so."

Added Williams: "Many guests suggested they would be willing to pay a small fee for the informational tours. In addition, the Town of Braselton has offered its support. We know the visitor center has been a great way for our business to connect with consumers and the general public, and we're excited to bring this attraction back to the Braselton community."

Beginning in 2013, tours at either visitor center will incur a $3 charge per person and will include a free scoop of Mayfield ice cream. Visiting the gift shop and ice cream parlor will remain free.

Founded in 1910, Mayfield Dairy Farms is based in Athens, Tenn. For more information, visit www.mayfielddairy.com.

The visitor center will reopen Nov. 9 with the following schedule: 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday; 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday; and closed on Sunday.

Great news! Nice to read a story about a community coming together, without public conflict, and solve a problem.

I've done the Mayfield tour with each of my kids as a second grade field trip. Found memories. My youngest is now 15 and my oldest in his 20s, but Mayfield is still the ice cream of choice. I believe it's because of this tour. Finding a way to keep the tour going is a wise investment by the company.
