Nothing Says Fall Like Apple Picking!

This weekend we spend a great Sunday with our good friend and her son at Lyman Orchards. The weather was perfect, absolutely fall like. The orchard is owned and operated by the Lyman Family since 1741, Lyman Orchards is recognized as the twelfth oldest family-owned business in America. We started with breakfast on the deck that over looked the property and pond. 

After our belly's were full of delicious pancakes we ventured into the corn maze. This years theme, The British Invasion Corn Maze, salutes the legendary bands of the 1960s! Here are some stats on the maze:
   • 4-acre maze
   • 2 miles of pathways
   • Challenging design
   • Fun trivia questions 
Did we get lost? Maybe just a little, but we had an amazing time and met some great people along the way! The cool thing is $1.00 of every admission is donated to the American Cancer Society. 

Next we did a little shopping in their unique market! The enticing aroma of fresh baked products fills the market all day long. From fresh pies, to apple cider donuts, muffins, cookies, breads, pastries, and more are made in their Farm Kitchen Bakery. Now you know we had to come home with some goodies like homemade jams, fudge, cheddar cheese, and of course apple crisp from the bakery... Hmmmmmm! 

We loaded up the car with our goodies and headed to the pick-your-own part of the orchard. First we picked some apples (macoun, they are my favorite). My girlfriend's son got so excited when he spotting an apple, I have to say we all got pretty excited

Next we headed down the road and picked peaches, the last of the season. These were a little harder to find but we did. 

We visited the pumpkin patch, just to take a few pictures. We plan to pick our pumpkins later in the season. 

The property is so beautiful, with lot of rolling hills. I took this picture from where we picked peaches on top of one of the hills. What a fantastic day! We vowed to make this a tradition. 

What are your favorite falls events?

Hooray it's fall!
