Hyland Orchard is located in the quaint, historic Fiskdale village of Sturbridge, Mass. The farm hosts private and public special events under a large, newly renovated and covered outdoor pavilion. Hyland Orchard was founded in 1945 by F. James Hyland. In 1996, Jim’s grandson Christopher Damon took over the orchards, and continues to run the farm and grounds today. Years ago, Chris’s brother Don transformed the farm’s 12,000-square-foot barn into a state-of-the-art brewery, which today is operated by Rapscallion Brewery.
Thousands of visitors flock here to celebrate their weddings, engagements, retirements, graduations, birthdays or personal time off outdoors on the 150-acre farm. Hyland’s extended family has taken great care to preserve a true family atmosphere for all to enjoy and it clearly shows.
Our newly renovated and covered outdoor pavilion area, with full lighting, table and chair rentals, 30-foot long bar, fire pit, and large band stage area. Hyland Orchard hosts free outdoor concerts and musical acts Friday nights and weekends during the summer through late fall. Come late August through October, apple picking among 2,400 trees, tractor rides, animal petting, and outdoor festivals define farm life.
The facility also houses a large micro-brewery, Rapscallion, which offers public tastings, tours and beer sales in the Tap Room.
