Athens, TN (Vocus) July 21, 2009
"This is an exciting and busy time for our company," said Scottie Mayfield, president of Mayfield Dairy Farms. "Mayfield's expansion into the Ohio market will give a whole new population of ice cream lovers a chance to enjoy the rich, creamy taste of Mayfield Ice Cream. And after they've enjoyed a bowl of the creamiest ice cream around, they'll know why we say it's not just ice cream, it's ice creamier."
Mr. Mayfield said that the legendary creamy texture of Mayfield Ice Cream starts with the fact that Mayfield uses only the finest, freshest cream straight from Mayfield's on-site creamery.
"But what really makes Mayfield's ice cream the creamiest is the way we freeze it," said Mr. Mayfield. "At Mayfield, we freeze our ice cream very quickly - it goes from soft to brick-hard in just 90 minutes. This quick freezing process decreases the amount and size of the ice crystals, creating the legendary smooth texture that makes Mayfield Ice Cream ice creamier."
This creamy texture, along with an ever-expanding roster of indulgent flavors, has made Mayfield's premium ice cream one of the most popular brands of ice cream in the nation, enjoyed by millions of people for nearly a century. In fact, TIME magazine once named Mayfield the "World's Best Ice Cream" - quite an accomplishment for the Athens, Tennessee-based dairy that the Mayfield family started in 1910 when they purchased 45 Jersey cows.
Today, Mayfield Dairy Farms is still a family business. Scottie Mayfield, president of Mayfield Dairy Farms, is the fourth generation of the Mayfield family to help oversee the dairy's operations. As the company's spokesperson, Mr. Mayfield - known by fans for his famous bowties - will be heavily involved with promoting the Mayfield brand in Ohio, appearing in all of the company's commercials and traveling to the market to do television and radio interviews.
In addition to seeing a lot of Mr. Mayfield, Ohioans can expect to become very familiar with the Mayfield Mom Squad, a team of energetic, enthusiastic moms who are loyal ambassadors for Mayfield and its products. The Mayfield Moms will be organizing special events, helping promote the Mayfield brand and sampling Mayfield ice cream at major retailers.
