Pick Your Own Pumpkin Patch
Lyman Orchards Pick Your Own Pumpkin Patches are officially open! Our Pick Your Own Pumpkin Patches are nestled on 200 acres of Pick Your Own fruit orchards and fields overlooking the scenic Connecticut River Valley. We produce on average, 275,000 to 350,000 lbs. of pumpkins each year! It's no wonder why Lyman Orchards was voted Connecticut's Best Pick Your Own Farm!
Pick Your Own Pumpkins
Pumpkins are a fall favorite, but they aren't just for Halloween! They're great for carving, painting, and sprucing up your fall décor right up until and even past Thanksgiving!
If you're looking for a fun way to spend a day in Connecticut, a visit to Lyman Orchards PYO Pumpkin Patch is the perfect destination for a wholesome, fun, family-friendly getaway! And because we grow so many varieties of fruit, it's worth the trip! The Pumpkin season lasts for 6-7 weeks (mid September-late October) and traditionally overlaps the Apple Season (mid August-Mid November) and the Pear Season (mid August - late September).

Lyman Orchards has one main pumpkin patch for weekends and two additional patches for weekdays. We regularly replenish the PYO patches with pumpkins from other fields that are scattered throughout the Orchard. In total we grow 35 acres of pumpkins!
The pumpkin varieties we grow include sugar and carving pumpkins. The sugar pumpkins are smaller and are often used for baking. Kids like to paint sugar pumpkins too! The carving pumpkins are typically used for fall displays and carving for Halloween.
In addition to orange colored pumpkins, we also grow white pumpkins (both sugar and carving). We grow multiple varieties, giving our customers a wide array of shapes and sizes to choose from.
Pumpkins are loaded with nutrition, rich in beta-carotene and low in saturated fat. They are also a good source of potassium and dietary fiber. Roasting pumpkin seeds in your oven makes for a delicious snack!
