I had the priviledge of taking a "fieldtrip" to the Mayfield Farm and Nursery yesterday!
Michael Mayfield, yes of the Mayfield Dairy family, invited me to come up to Athens TN and take a tour of his farm and nursery.
I grew up in Fern Creek (Louisville) Kentucky. Our neighborhood was surrounded by farmland. I even had cousins who were dairy farmers and for a stint while in college I worked at Stockyard Farm and Dairy Supply. I have a fondness for farmers.
Michael is no exception. I enjoyed riding around the farm with him in his truck. His passion for produce is fantastic. His farm is a true joy to visit.
It's strawberry time right now, and as the weeks go on there will be more and more farm fresh produce showing up in his market.
I encourage you to take some time away with your family, head up to Athens and check out Michael's farm. Ask for Michael, he'd be glad to meet you.
