Q: When did Mayfield begin operations?
A: The dairy industry was much different back in 1910 when T.B. Mayfield, Jr., purchased some Jersey cows and started his business. When sons Scott and Tom took over the business after World War II, they used innovation and technology to become one of the most respected brands, not only in the southeastern U.S., but in the entire industry.

Q: Does Mayfield produce more than milk and ice cream?
Q: At what temperature should I set my refrigerator to keep my Mayfield milk as fresh as possible?
A: It's best to keep the temperature in your refrigerator between 33° to 38° Fahrenheit to keep your milk fresh. When the temperature of milk increases above 38° the product life begins to decrease. We recommend keeping a thermometer in your fridge, so you know you're maintaining the best temperature for your dairy products.
