GREENFIELD –– Work crews are continuing the effort to resurrect a part of Greenfield history as they continue to rebuild The Mug, formerly known as the Frosty Mug, ahead of a mid-September opening.

Tyner Pond Farm purchased the longtime drive-in in January after the east-side summer gathering place at 117 N. Apple St., across from Riley Park, went into foreclosure in 2010.

Tyner Pond Farm owner Chris Baggott said the 22-member staff at the reincarnated drive-in will run through several soft and trial openings in the near future.

“People are really excited,” Baggott said.

  As happened for generations at the former drive-in, the restaurant will continue to take orders at the curb, but updated technology will make the process much faster, Baggott said.
