After deep reflection, we have decided to cancel all 2020 gatherings at La Basse Cour, including events, workshops, farm tours and bed&breakfast stays. We are sad for the plans not coming to fruition as we had intended, but believe that our best response to these uncertain pandemic times is to observe a "Quiet Year" at the farm.

We will be none the less busy, working toward our food and fiber production goals while tending the land and animals entrusted to our care. Our eggs will be for sale as always in our milk house, and our vegetables in season on our farm stand. Please practice social distancing and wear your mask if you come to the farm.

You can see what we're up to by following us on Facebook, subscribing to our newsletter, and reading our blog posts.

You are all in our thoughts daily and we look forward to sharing many joyful events at La Basse Cour, at Kortright Handworks @ La Basse Cour, and in The Carriage House @ La Basse Cour.

Nestled in the peaceful quiet of the Western Catskills, La Basse Cour is a small family farm practicing natural methods in harmony with nature. For over 150 years, traditional farming techniques have resulted in rich soils growing nutritious vegetables, berries and herbs and nurturing healthy pastures for our farm animals, and meadows, woodland and wetland habitat for wildlife.

Take a step back to a simpler time. Enjoy the views, marvel at the spectacular Greek Revival farmhouse, listen to the babbling brook as it washes your cares away. Visit with us and recall - or re-create - life in the slow lane. And take home a little piece of heaven on earth to enjoy with your family and friends.
