At the former Aistere baronial estate, Jānis Pakalns has planted an orchard, and for more than two decades he has not used any artificial fertilisers. The orchard has some 240 apple trees (120 different kinds), 30 varieties of pears, and also plums. Visitors can taste 120 (!) kinds of apples year-round, and consultations and purchase of products are offered. This is known as the “most romantic” orchard in Latvia.
