About us

 

nicolasSince 1983, our farm is located at the Col de Tamié in Savoie.

Sophie and Jacques established the farm in 1983, when they decided to leave the city and take up farming in the mountains of Savoie. After renovating a then-empty farm next to the Abbaye de Tamié, they began producing milk for the Tamié cheese with a herd of 20 dairy cows. They now boast a herd of 45 milking cows and 35 heifers, who are waiting their turn to produce milk of their own.

In 2009, their son Nicolas joined them on the farm. Together, they all went head-on into the ice cream-making adventure, and the Glaces & Cows brand was born. Today, the adventure continues and there are no regrets!

L'équipe

jacques-glacesncowsSophie left us for the next world in 2012. Her absence leaves us saddened hearts, but just as many cows to milk and ice cream to make.
Jacques, still a dreamer, keeps his feet on the ground. He is responsible for everything relating to ice cream and sorbet; if there's a new flavor, he's to thank. In the meantime, he also works with Nicolas on the farm, taking care of the cows and maintaining the fields.
nicolas-glacesncowsNicolas joined his parents on the farm in 2009, and today, he is the man in charge. He also helps Jacques with the ice cream, especially during the holidays when he shows off his true talent of making vacherins, the delicious ice cream, sorbet and meringues cakes.
hillary-glacesncowsHillary, Nicolas' wife, left her native California and settled in the Bauges in 2011. She often works with both the cows and the ice cream, and she will welcome you to the farmhouse, Maison Glaces & Cows. She is also the official ice cream taster!
