Lyman Orchards | Kids Out and About Hartford

Lyman Orchards

Connecticut River Valley’s favorite farm on our annual KidsOutAndAbout Top 20 Places to Take Kids in Hartford, Lyman Orchards is a beautiful and sprawling farm with gorgeous scenery and a sense of history you can feel with each step you take. Lyman Orchards has been a CT favorite for more than 275 years and they pride themselves on a tradition of preserving the land and offering wholesome activities for the whole family.

Your kids can be farmers for a day with Lyman’s famous Pick Your Own apples, pears, and pumpkins. Lyman’s unique Apple Barrel market provides delicious apple cider donuts, muffins, cookies, breads, pastries and of course award-winning pies. Trust me when I tell you - the aroma alone is worth the trip.


Pick Your Own Apples is open every day through November 5th from 9am-5pm. 

Pick Your own Pumpkins will be available every day from 9-5 starting on September 15th.

Soar through this year’s challenging Corn Maze as we celebrate the 90th anniversary of Charles Lindbergh’s historic flight from New York to Paris aboard the Spirit of St. Louis.
