Lyman Orchards 

We invite you to join us as we celebrate our fresh grown, juicy peaches with a day of delicious family fun!  We'll have lots of great activities for the whole family, including Lyman's delicious apples, blueberries, pears and squash, as well as sweet treats from the Apple Barrel. FREE ADMISSION.

Peach Fest is sponsored by The Hartford Courant.

The fun all begins with a delicious breakfast  on the Apple Barrel deck. Have you ever had a Butter Grilled Cider Donut. We take one of our fresh-made Apple Cider Donuts and grill it to perfection and top it with fresh in-season fruits and whipped cream!

Bus13We are please to welcome back to the farm, BUS13, which is well known for their blend of rock, country-rock and power-pop flare. BUS13’s music has been inspired by a wide variety of artists and styles including Jeff Tweedy/WILCO, Ryan Adams, Eagles, John Lennon, Neil Young, and Hank Williams – you get the picture.
