HERITAGE LANE

As one drives into Dennegeur, you are welcomed by a row of apple trees, known as our Heritage Lane. Our Heritage Lane includes 20 different apple varieties. Quite a few of these varieties are rare, and while we don’t grow all of them commercially, they still form part of our Dennegeur pride.
