This review is for the scrumptious chocolate cream pie from Lyman Orchards that was eagerly devoured on Thanksgiving. I purchased the pie frozen as Thanksgiving was still three weeks away, but you'd never know it had been frozen. This was probably the best food item for the whole day, and with my Sicilian mother cooking, that says a lot.

Challenge yourself to Lyman's special anniversary corn maze....2 miles of pathways, great design and fun trivia questions. There were corn cops to help you guide the way and it was much fun. If you can't participate during their maze season, other activities including picking apples, pears and pumpkins and much more are there. A fun experience for all.

A while back I wrote a stellar review for Lyman Orchards... I'm sorry to report back that things have gone downhill since my last review. Lets start with the rewards program. For every $25.00 spent in the past you used to earn a wooden nickle which was great fun to save up and give to the kids who could trade... More

Ok, this may be an unfair rating. I've been to Lyman's numerous times. Typically I'd give a 4 rating. My kids love picking the apples and feeding the ducks. Every year I've gone has been good. A bit expensive but, good. But, this time we were no more than cattle. Did someone go moo ? Wow, that place was packed... More

Hi BlueyedDevil-- thank you so much for coming out to the farm. We're so sorry that your experience this weekend was less than you expected.

My family and I have been coming to this farm for years and we love it! It is never crowded, the orchard is so big, the variety of apples is great! The pumpkin patch has the most incredible view with a lake at the bottom. This place is great for picturesque photos. They also have a corn maze with a... More

This has been an active farm since 1741! I've been coming here to pick apples with my dad for 30 years. This year I picked Spencer's and Mutsu Crispins. They're both sweet, crunchy and exactly how apples should taste. Worth every penny. You can pick pumpkins too. Just a great place to come with the family and enjoy the simple... More

Revisited this place for lunch with Mom. They have good food and you get apples for dessert. The only thing that I wished for was to sample the apple cider donut holes before I bought 2 containers!

We had a fantastic breakfast of pancakes here, they were excellent, a huge amount and I only had the child's portion. We also bought a peach pie to take home and it was also delicious.

Arrive here no later than 10am because it will be swamped people, but totally worth it. We visited this location with friends who are locals to the area.

Went to the sunflower patch maze by Lyman's Orchards. Have to say it was a wonderful experience. The flowers are in full bloom and gorgeous! They appear to go for miles! Caution: there are a lot of birds and bees busy about (which Lymans warns you about upfront with their signs). In my personal experience, if you leave them alone,... More
