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.

In July, Kortright Handworks @ La Basse Cour added a 16" Ashford SampleIt rigid heddle loom to its inventory of fiber arts equipment. We bought the loom from Cece's Wool and Farm Store (an Ashford distributor), ordering it ahead and making the purchase during Jefferson Historical Society's annual Textile Day event in The Maple Museum.
