Join us as we celebrate everyone's favorite berry – the Blueberry. It is right to honor this nutritional powerhouse with a day of sweet family fun. You can spend time picking our homegrown Blueberries right where they grow, and we'll also have a wonderful supply of Raspberries and Jostaberries as well! That's a delicious triple play! We'll have lots of great activities for the whole family, Lyman's fresh grown berries, and sweet berry treats from the Apple Barrel.
Come out and enjoy the fantastic sounds of CJ West and the Downtown Train. CJ West and The Downtown Train is always taking you somewhere with a delightful mix of kickin' country, rock, and rhythm & blues. Whatever trip they're taking you on, this band's talented instrumentalists and well-blended voices add up to a unique, danceable and fun musical experience!
More fun activities include Breakfast on the Deck, Berry picking in the orchard, complementary food tastings and demos, pie eating contests, pony rides, tractor-pullled wagon rides and interactive activities for children throughout the day.
CT Historian and Durham resident Diana McCain will be on hand to sign her new fictional novel, Thy Children's Children, which brilliantly traces five generations of the Lyman family throughout the turbulent decades that saw a handful of American colonies transformed into a young nation on the cusp of the industrial revolution.
And don't miss out Pie Eating Contests! Dive face-first into a delicious Lyman Orchards pie to win great prizes!
Our friends from Macaroni Kid will be here with a new initiative, The Kindness Rocks Project! Be a part of the change...create inspirational rocks to spread inspiration and motivation for unsuspecting recipients.
