One of the greatest things about living in New England in the fall is visiting the orchards. They offer great opportunities for family fun like apple picking, pumpkins picking, and creative mazes. We have the tradition of going pumpkin picking with friends every year, which is something I’ve done ever since I was a little girl. But pumpkin picking is just one aspect of the orchard fun! This year we were lucky enough to partner with Lexus and head out to my favorite Connecticut orchard for the #LexusHarvest at Lyman Farms.
If you are from the area, chances are you’ve visited or heard of Lyman Farms. Their gorgeous property sitting on 1,100 acres offers pretty much everything from picking your own apples and pumpkins to a country store with homemade goodies to an elite golf course and gigantic corn maze. Lyman’s is sure to have something to fit the interest of everyone in your family!
This year Lexus sent us, along with Mimi and Poppy, on a maze quest through the 4 acre Pez inspired corn maze. The boys picked up a special sheet that gave us clues at each marker to lead us through the maze. There were so many cool parts to the maze, like the random signs with Pez facts that were throughout the maze or the markers themselves, which were huge Pez candy wrappers. Big Prince thought it was amazing, especially since he visited the factory over the summer! Little Prince was in awe of his ability to run through corn stalks. The adults were just as amped as the kids to head through and decipher the best route, all the while checking the map and seeing where we landed in the giant Pez!
After our maze excursion, we went for photo ops and concluded our trip in the store. When visiting Lyman Orchard, it’s a requirement to stop and grab their Apple cider and apple cider donuts! If you’re planning a day trip there, you can head over to the cafe first and enjoy lunch before dessert! Either way you’re sure to make a fun filled memorable time!
We had so much fun in the maze and checking out the pumpkins, that the boys passed out (in luxurious style) before we were out of the farm! Stay tuned for more info on our #LexusHarvest adventures!
