Lyman Orchards - Apples - Granny Smith 1/2 peck - IPM Integrated Pest Management
Maria Ann (Granny) Smith discovered a green apple growing on her property in Australia in 1868 in the same place that she often tossed French crab apples grown in Tasmania. The seedling developed into bright green colored apples that are now one of the most well-known apples thanks to its tart flavor and baking abilities.The parentage of Granny Smith is still uncertain, but many believe it is a cross between the French Crab apple and the Rome beauty. Washington apple growers began growing the variety commercially in the late 1960s and it continues to be a go-to for tart apple lovers everywhere.
In their wildest dreams, colonial farmer John Lyman and his wife, Hope, could not have envisioned the complex and diverse enterprise that would evolve from their purchase in 1741 of a 37-acre parcel of land in what is now Middlefield. Now covering more than 1,100 acres of scenic farmland, Lyman Orchards is one of the most popular family attractions in New England. Through a history spanning ten generations, the Lyman family heritage was founded upon a commitment to preserve their land for future generations, using a combination of determination, innovation, and adaptation – attributes that hold true today.
Even after 275 years, Lyman Orchards continues to evolve while maintaining its steadfast commitment to preserving the land for future generations. Today, members of the 8th and 9th generations of the family are directly involved in the business. Like their ancestors before them, preservation of the land remains central to their heritage, and the family continues to be innovative in its ways of upholding their traditions.
