Welcome to Leben seeds. The Alps are where we are from, where alpine meadows full of wild flowers, honey bees, cows with bells, the purest air, where cheese is made from the rich milk of alpine cows, salame and hams are made to see us through the winter months and where we grow traditional vegetables which are used to preserve or for simple, warming winter dishes. This is our tradition and we hope you can experience our traditional, alpine varieties for yourself with LEBEN seeds.
