Mayfield Dairy closing Braselton plant, laying off 108 workers

Mayfield Dairy is closing its plant in Braselton, laying off more than 100 people, according to a letter sent to the town’s mayor.

The company, owned by Dean Foods, initially announced it would close the dairy plant’s visitor center on July 19. That was three days after a letter was sent to Braselton Mayor Bill Orr, saying all 108 of the plant’s employees would be laid off.
