“Our favorite way to celebrate spring is to harken back to fall, when apples rule at Lyman Orchards!” said John Lyman III, executive vice president and eighth generation family member.

Spring might not be the season for picking apples, but it’s the perfect time to hunt for them at Lyman Orchards.

Join Lyman Orchards for Connecticut’s only spring apple hunt, Saturday, April 21, beginning at 10 a.m. Kids ages 1-10 can search for thousands of Lyman-grown, Eco-Certified apples hidden in a hay maze -- a Lyman tradition for 34 years. Children will also enjoy face-painting, a free event T-Shirt and a free magic show with Connecticut’s own Evan Presto.

When they’re finished hunting for apples, the whole family can hop aboard a horse-drawn wagon, and kids can take pony rides as well. Costumed princesses will roam the grounds for photographs and autographs. And to cap off the day, pie eating contests will be held after the magic show for kids and adults alike.

The whole family can enjoy delicious kettle corn from the Bruno Brothers, and if they’re hungry for more, the Deli Grill will serve breakfast sandwiches starting at 9 a.m. Burgers, hot dogs, brisket and lobster rolls will be served from the outdoor grill beginning at 11:30 a.m.

“Our favorite way to celebrate spring is to harken back to fall, when apples rule at Lyman Orchards!” said John Lyman III, executive vice president and eighth generation family member. “The Apple Hunt is a great way for us to welcome the community back to the farm, and to bring the farm to the community. And we love that parents who participated in the Apple Hunt when they were children now bring their kids to participate in this family-fun event!”
