2020 Corn Maze at Lyman Orchards

August 29, 2020

November 1, 2020

"Thank You Our Heroes”, an appreciation for our Frontline Workers.

The iconic Statue of Liberty, a symbol that unites all Americans, is adorned with a giant Heart, the symbol that universally stands for our show of thanks and appreciation for our Frontline Workers during this COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.  You will learn about nurses, medical professionals, EMT’s, fire fighters, charitable organizations, and more.  The Corn Maze is 4 acres, and there is a total of one mile of paths and hundreds of decision points.  There are 10 positions in the Maze which coincide with 10 multiple choice questions on a passport that guides the visitors—if you answer correctly you go the right way, if you answer incorrectly you get lost!.  The passports have multiple themes—you can choose the subject that most interests you.  We staff the Maze with Maze Monitors who are there to assist as needed.  The average time needed to navigate the entire Maze is 30-40 minutes.  The Maze is interactive, engaging and fun for all ages.   

Donations  This is our 21st Corn Maze.  Since 2000, we have donated $1 of every ticket sold to the American Cancer Society.  The accumulative total coming into this year is $623,315.  In addition, this will be the first year that we will donate fifty cents of every ticket sold to the Connecticut Cancer Foundation.

2020 Corn Maze Procedures

Ensuring the health and safety of our customers and employees is at the forefront of our 2020 Corn Maze procedures.  We understand that we are implementing many changes, and we ask for your understanding and cooperation.  Most importantly, we thank you for your patronage!

  • If you are sick or not feeling well, please stay home and don’t come to the farm, PYO or the Maze.
  • You are required to wear a face mask if you are not able to maintain a safe social distance, which is a minimum of 6’ between you and others outside your group—please bring your own mask.  This means wearing a mask at the booth/entrance and exit area.  You may remove your mask while in the Maze as long as you can maintain safe social distancing.  Children 2 years old and younger are not required to wear masks.
  • Our employees and volunteers will wear masks at all times.
  • Social distancing will be maintained, 6’ between individuals
  • We will have enhanced sanitation practices, regularly cleaning and sanitizing high touch points
  • You are requested to wash and/or sanitize your hands regularly and as needed--we’ll have plenty of sanitizer available
  • Groups or parties will be limited to no more than 4 so as to maintain safe social distancing in the Maze.  The exception is there is no limit for immediate family members. 
  • Maze Monitors will be in the Maze to assist in keeping guests from congregating and to maintain safe social distancing.
  • The number of guests in the Maze will be limited at any given time to allow for safe social distancing.  We will do this by staggering the entering into the Maze.
  • These limits may lead to wait times especially during busier times and or on weekends.
  • We encourage you to come during the weekday, or earlier in the morning or later in the afternoon on weekend days.
  • Picnicking activity is allowed in designated areas around the Apple Barrel Market, but will not be allowed in the Orchard or in the Maze area.
