We are tremendously honored to play an ongoing role in helping support their relentless efforts.”

“The generosity from Lyman Orchards continues to be amazing,” states Michael Isakoff, MD, Division Chief, Center for Cancer & Blood Disorders. “This past year has been unparalleled with the pandemic—and the support we receive from Lyman Orchards has been critical, so that we can continue to support our patients and families.” The theme of the 2021 Sunflower Maze was the PBS icon Arthur. ™

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.
