Lyman's does a great job. The Apple Barrel has wonderful fresh produce. Pick your own in the orchards is fun and economical! The golf courses are top quality

This was our first trip to Lyman Orchard and so worth the ride. What a great family day with horse-drawn sleigh rides,dog sled rides and Mushing lessons for ages 7 & up. Although the Mushing lessons and dog sled rides sold out fast with reservations needing to made early in the day since those doggies need their breaks we were... More

If you are anywhere near Lyman Orchards it is worth the stop! Beautiful family owned and operated orchards, corn maze in the fall and sunflower maze in the summer. We visited this time in the winter and it was still beautiful. The store serves up lunch and hot coffees and cider.

So much to pick and eat! blueberries, peaches, apples........but the sunflower maze was what made it all worth the travel here. Try the pie too! You will love it. Hope you like the sunflower pictures Located just east of 91 in Middlefield Connecticut. Should make the trip here every year

We bought a Lyman Orchard’s No-Sugar-Added 6” apple pie at Big-Y. The three of us thought it was so horrible that we tossed right into the garbage. The apple slices maintained their shape but inside they were a tasteless mush. (Frozen apples and microwave cooked?) No self-respecting baker would disgrace America’s favorite pie, like Lyman Orchard has.

We went to the Lyman's corn-maze last Saturday and had a great time (maze open until 11/3). We've never been to a corn maze before and we had a great time wondering through the field, answering the questions, following the map. The mini fresh hot cinnamon donuts were fabulous. The store was jam packed so we didn't stay in there... More

This is a great place to visit for picking your own fruit or veggies! There is a great selection of many varieties of apples, peaches, and pears. The Apple Barrel has a lot of great snacks as well!

We enjoyed apple picking in Lyman Orchards. They do the seasonal picking for Straw Berry, Pears, Apple, Pumpkin etc. You can pluck your own fruits and eat it there free. You can also carry the fruits plucked by you, paying for the same at the counter. You can enjoy as if you are plcking the fruits from your own garden.

My children grew up feeding the ducks on the pond in front of the store, going on hay rides, horse rides, picking blueberries, apples and pears at Lyman's. It is a wonderful place during festivals and when the picking season begins. The store produce isn't always the freshest, but their pastries, pies, apple cider and jams are amazing!
