There's still time to pick delicious mid-season apple varieties at Lyman Orchards

Who: Mid-season apple varieties such as Macoun, Cortland, Mcintosh, Gala and Empire are ripe for the picking at Lyman Orchards. From sweet and juicy to tart and tangy, mid-season apples are the perfect fruit for snacking, packing and baking.

What: A good source of fiber, apples are high in Vitamin C and potassium, low in sodium, and are almost fat-free. Folks can enjoy a beautiful day on the farm picking apples and pumpkins, then can stop by the Apple Barrel farm market for Connecticut-grown produce, fruit from the orchards, freshly baked goods, and breakfast or lunch.

When: Mid-Season varieties are available for Pick Your Own right now, including: Macoun, Cortland, McIntosh, Empire and Jonagold.

Where: Lyman Orchards, 32 Reeds Gap Rd, Middlefield, Conn.

Why: Enjoy a beautiful fall day on the farm. After apple-picking, visitors can get lost in our annual corn maze. This year’s theme is Charles Lindbergh’s famous Spirit of St. Louis, the single-engine plane he piloted solo in 1927 on the first, nonstop transatlantic flight. One dollar from each admission will be donated to the American Cancer Society. Visitors can soar through this four-acre corn maze, which is actually taller than the iconic airplane itself.
