2024 Pick Your Own Procedures

Here at Lyman Orchards, we want to ensure your pick-your-own experience is enjoyable, fun, and nothing less than top-notch!  We thank you for your cooperation in following our 2024 Pick-Your-Own Procedures.  Thank you for your continued patronage!

  • If you are sick or not feeling well, please stay home and do not come to the farm or PYO
  • Picking containers are provided—you are not allowed to bring your own container(s), we do allow you to bring your used Lyman 4-quart and tray containers on your return visits
  • The payment method is pay-then-pick; you can choose between different size containers to purchase: 1 Pint, 1 Quart, 4 Quart, and Tray for berries. ½ peck, 1 Peck, and ½ Bushel for tree fruit.—you will save the more you pick
  • We accept cash, credit, debit, and contactless payment options
  • You will make your purchase before entering the field
  • Once you are done picking you simply leave along the marked exit route and return to your vehicle—no more lines waiting to pay, and no large congregation around the PYO booth
  • On busy days, a field monitor will assign you to the best picking area. We will redirect you once that area has been picked out
  • The number of pickers in the field may be limited at any given time to allow for best picking conditions—these limits will vary depending upon the field and/or the amount of ripe fruit within the field
  • These limits may lead to wait times especially during busier times and or on weekends
  • We encourage you to come during the weekday (Monday through Friday) or earlier in the morning or later in the afternoon for less crowded conditions
  • Fruit picked cannot be consumed in the field, and should be washed/eaten at home
  • Picnicking activity will not be allowed in the Orchard or in the PYO area
  • Animals/Pets will not be allowed in the Orchard or in PYO area
  • If you require a service animal please contact us in advance for specific guidelines
Lyman Orchards is a pet-free property. Please leave your pets at home. Service Animals Welcome.
