Mayfield Dairy Tour with Ice Cream Finish

If you love ice cream and are looking for a cool tour to take with your family or friends, I recommend the Mayfield Dairy Tour (1160 Broadway Avenue, Braselton, GA  30517).  For under $5, you get a tour of the dairy plant, learn all about pasteurization and different kinds of milk, practice milking a pretend cow, and eat ice cream in the parlor.   Yum!  

Growing up in the country, I remember the cows being milked, the pasteurization process, and separating the cream.  When I was young, I even rode a cow down the hill and into the barn.    I don’t think I’d be brave enough to do that now.   The tour explained the process of getting the milk from the farm to the dairy plant to you.   It was very educational and entertaining. 

As you can see, we had a great time visiting the Mayfield Dairy.   Thanks Lois for organizing our outing.

The tours run hourly on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 9AM to 5PM with the first tour at 10AM and last tour at 4PM.   On Saturday, tours run hourly from 9AM to 2PM with the first tour at 10AM and last tour at 1PM.   For more info, call 1-888-298-0396 or check out their website at http://www.mayfielddairy.com/about-us/take-a-tour#visit-us-in-braselton-ga.

First Impressions Start at the Street

When a buyer arrives at your house, they should feel welcomed.   First impressions start at the street. 


There are many simple ways to spruce up your yard and the exterior of your house. 
  • Put out new mulch or pine straw in your flower beds.
  • Add some seasonal flowers to make the front yard more vibrant.
  • Power wash the sidewalks and driveway. 
  • Clean the light fixtures and windows.
  • Paint the front door.
  • Trim the shrubs.
  • Stage your porches and decks for relaxing or entertaining.
  • Put out a new welcome mat.
  • Walk around your house to check exterior paint and walkability of the yard.
  • Rake the leaves.
  • Keep trash cans and hoses out of the front view of the house.
  • Remove and store the window screens to give a clean look both inside and out. 



These are just a few ideas to make your house more welcoming.   For more ideas, check out my Pinterest Board Home Staging Like a Pro.  Remember sometimes plain old elbow grease and a small amount of money will increase your curb appeal and bring that buyer home.
