27th Annual Harvest Music Festival set for Lyman Orchards Two-day event to benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital

November 15, 2021

Middlefield, CT—Lyman Orchards, an independently-owned family destination for over 275 years, is proud to be the venue for the 27th Annual Harvest Music Festival—a fundraiser to benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. The event is hosted by St. Jude Connecticut Network.

The two-day event—scheduled for Saturday, September 11 and Sunday, September 12 from 11 am to 5 pm—will feature live, back-to-back performances from several local musicians and bands. Admission to the Music Festival is free. There is an option to purchase a Beer Garden ticket for $20. To help raise funds for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Lyman Orchards will also be featuring a variety of family-oriented activities, including pony rides, hayrides, a rock 'n' roll themed-Corn Maze, and outdoor grilling.

“When you think of pioneering medical research, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital comes immediately to mind,” states Lyman Orchards Executive Vice President John Lyman. “We're so excited to be the venue for this year's Music Festival—and we anticipate a great turnout of fun-loving families who are equally excited to join the fight against childhood cancer.”

“Lyman Orchards is a great and exciting place to be when the autumn colors and crisp air return to New England,” says Tony Raucci, President of St. Jude Connecticut Network. “I am so appreciative of the opportunity that the Lyman Family provides to help our kids who are fighting for their lives with cancer.”

Meet The Chef

At nine years old, Ben Gaffney asked if he could work alongside his father, a chef, at Congress Rotisserie in New Haven. The elder Gaffney put the boy to work washing dishes for two years, in the hope that it would discourage his interest in the restaurant business.

But a calling is a calling. Ben Gaffney has spent his life since then pursuing the wonders of food, bringing Middlefield along for the ride as chef at Lyman Orchards since 2017.
