Spring Apple Hunt and Pancake Party at Lyman Orchards

April 13 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

The Lyman Orchards Spring Apple Hunt annual tradition continues!

Children ages 1-10 years old are invited to claim some of the thousands of Lyman's own eco-certified apples hidden in our Hay Maze on the grounds of the Apple Barrel Farm Market on Saturday, April 13th! It's a picture perfect activity, creating family memories on the farm.

Pancakes and breakfast sandwiches will be available for purchase at the Apple Barrel Deli until 11am. 

Join us for a free Magic Show with Bill Hoagland after the Apple Hunt on the Apple Barrel Farm Market Patio, 11am & 11:45am and hop on a horse-drawn hayride (for a nominal fee) from 9am-2pm.

Apple Hunt admission is $15.00 per child (ages 1 to 10 years old)


FOR A LIMITED TIME! We're celebrating the start of spring by offering a Family 4-pack ticket bundle! Get 4 tickets for the price of 3, just select that ticket price at checkout and list the name, time, and age group of each ticket holder for the four pack. 

Every child participating in the Hunt receives a Lyman Orchards Spring Apple Hunt T-shirt!

Durham-Middlefield Girl Scouts will also be onsite from 10am-2pm selling girl scout cookies.

*New This Year* T-shirt size selection will be made during the check-in process the day of the event (not in advance). We will have a variety of sizes at check-in; preferred shirt sizes are not guaranteed - but we will do our absolute best! T-shirts will be given at check-in before the hunts begin.

The Apple Barrel Farm Market opens at 9am for coffee, donuts, and plenty of freshly baked goods! Breakfast sandwiches will be served at the Apple Barrel Deli until 11am.
