“An Apple A Day”
Reviewed September 23, 2012

Not an orchard -- its an orchard, country store, corn maze, golf course and golf school. The food and the golf are both very good. A nice day out with the kids.

“A Fun Way to Spend an Autumn Day!”
Reviewed September 22, 2012

Our usual for apple picking, Blue Jay Orchards, doesn't have PYO this year, so we instead came to Lyman. The views are fantastic, as are the varieties of apples provided. It is annoying, though, that you must drive from orchard to orchard to pick different varieties. I would have loved to try to cider donuts but the line was waaaayyyyy too long--pity! Bring a picnic and spend the day here! $ for PYO very reasonable, make sure to call ahead.

“Best Apple Pie and good farmstand”
Reviewed September 21, 2012

Somewhat commercialized, Lymans has a golf course, pick your own trees and bushes, good apples, berries, peaches, etc. They have a good lunch bar at reasonable prices and a duck pond for the kiddies.
