I am sure this isn't a big deal for many of you, but neither of us had ever been. We found Lyman Orchards online and thought it would be a quiet little farm. Boy were we wrong! There was a stream of cars going in and out, both a sunflower and corn maze, and a grocery store complete with a bakery pumping out apple pies and apple cider donuts. Mmmm!
We came home with a bag of apples, an apple cider donut (for me!), homemade pot pies (for him!), and fresh apple cider. I am looking forward to warming up the apple cider on the stove with plenty of spices. Definitely a warm welcome for Fall.
We'll be going back next month to pick pumpkins and more apples. If you're in the Hartford / Middlefield area, I would recommend you take a trip as well!
