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.

Fall arrives at La Basse Cour!

Family Farm Day was a watershed moment for me as a dyer. A friend had given us some japanese indigo (persicaria tinctoria) seedlings in the spring and now was the time to harvest the leaves from the mature plants. I decided to follow the method described on the Botanical Colors website, and to make this experiment into a demonstration.
