The conservation orchard

The conservation orchard is behind the Sainte-Valérie chapel. It is made up of 46 ancient varieties of apples, including the old Lorraine varieties (whose origins in the department are explained on the labels) and others qualified as “deserving”, including some that are well-known, such as the “king of the pippins” and the “pomme d’api”…
As with all the collections, we use ecological cultivation techniques and do not use pesticides.
