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.

The Leaves are Falling like Snowflakes at La Basse Cour

In June of 2017, Diane and I decided to combine our energy, expertise, and experience to form Kortright Handworks @ La Basse Cour. My impetus at that time was simple and straightforward: I wanted to knit with wool from sheep that I knew. The intervening 28 months have been busy and educational. I am grateful for Diane and Larry's willingness to have me working alongside them on their farm.
