Curbside Pick-Up

Here at Lyman Orchards, we are dedicated to providing quality service, especially in uncertain times such as these. Many restaurants are closed, and it can be difficult to find what you need at the grocery stores. We understand that everyone is struggling right now, and we want to help you maintain your normal daily routine with as few disruptions as possible, which is why we are now offering grocery curbside pickup for orders!

Call 860-349-6000 to place your order over the phone and schedule a time for pickup, and our skilled team of workers will carefully and quickly put together your order for you, no hassle involved. You can even pay over the phone if you like! While orders currently cannot be placed through our website, we do have plans to make online ordering available as soon as possible, so stay tuned for further updates.

To make things even easier for you, there is no minimum order value for curbside pickup, and our full selection of items is conveniently available for curbside pickup. Not to mention, you’d be supporting a local business! 

To maintain strict safety guidelines, all of our staff are required to be wearing not only masks and gloves, but hairnets as well, at all times. On top of that, our entire store gets wiped down daily to make sure things are absolutely as sanitary as we can possibly make them be. Simply pull up to the Apple Barrel and our employees will place your completed order in your car for you, so that you never have to even step out of your car! Give us a call to let us know when you’ve arrived and we will be out with your order right away.

Our supermarket is, of course, still open to those customers who would like to do their shopping themselves. We are currently not limiting group sizes, so feel free to stop in yourself!

Meals To Go

Lyman Orchards is proud to announce that we are committed to helping you get through this unprecedented time, and what better way to do that than through our Meals To Go?

We have greatly expanded our menu, and are now offering a wide variety of selections all handily listed under the Meals To Go section of our website. We understand that these difficult times are exhausting, and the last thing you feel like doing at the end of a long day is cooking yourself a whole meal. Let us do the work for you, and support a local business in the process!

In addition to our Hi-Top Apple Pie, we offer more than twenty other delicious pie varieties, including seasonal and year-round favorites. When it comes to pies for holidays, special occasions, or an every day indulgence, we've got you covered!

Meet Our 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.
