Lyman Orchards to host Evidence of Evil Haunted Attraction

November 15, 2021

Middlefield, CT—Lyman Orchards, an independently-owned family destination for over 275 years, is pleased to host the Evidence of Evil Haunted Attraction for this year’s Halloween season.
This interactive attraction—open every Friday, Saturday and Sunday in October—will be hidden deep in the woods adjacent to the Lyman Orchards Pick-Your-Own location. As people pass through the exhibit, they will encounter live costumed actors doing their best to provide the spine-tingling chills and excitement that define Halloween. Tickets will only be available online. The attraction is rated PG-13; children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult. A portion of the attraction’s proceeds will be donated to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

“We’re excited to add this new attraction to our October lineup, which includes Pick-Your-Own Apples and Pumpkins, the Corn Maze, shopping at the Apple Barrel Farm Market, and dining at the 1741 Pub & Grill,” states Lyman Orchards Executive Vice President John Lyman. “This promises to be an unforgettable experience!”

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.
