A special orchard where almost 100 ancient varieties of apples and pears are grown!
The cultivation of apple trees in Val di Non has been practiced for several centuries. In order to enhance this rich and important agricoltural but also cultural heritage, the Municipality of Cles has given a piece of land in the area of Bersaglio to create a historic orchard.
Currently there are about 80 ancient varieties of apples and 12 pears.
The orchard can host educational initiatives for children and schools, but also for elderly people who can tell important stories from their past.
The historic orchard is freely accessible.
