In the mountains of La comballaz, alpine farmers Fanny and Sébastien live in complete harmony with the nature that surrounds them. With Alps in Bloom, each carefully plucked and dried flower at the Yackabons flourishes freely to tell its own story.
Surrounded by rich green pastures and colossal mountains, it’s here that they cultivate, pick and then dry all their own plants. When the time is right they also forage for wild plants, respectful of the season as well as the lunar and planetary cycles.
Herbalist Fanny then assembles the various plants to create herbal infusions. Over 20 different blends are on sale with tantalising names such as « Warm me Up », « The joy of living » and even one called « Let it go ». With the same plants Fanny also produces aromatic salts and seasonings.
In the summertime the Yackabons throw open the doors of their sanctuary to visitors offering set meals, storytelling, days dedicated to herbal teas and of course sessions picking plants and herbs. Quite simply, it’s a riveting rendezvous with nature.
