Nestled in the peaceful quiet of the Western Catskills, La Basse Cour is a small family farm practicing natural methods in balance with nature. For over 150 years, traditional farming techniques have resulted in rich soils now growing nutritious vegetables, berries and herbs for your family and nurturing healthy pastureland for our animals and yours, and 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.

First Day of Spring at La Basse Cour and Kortright Handworks!

In late February I was “nominated” for the 10 day farming family challenge by a Facebook – and real life farmer-friend. The challenge is to post pictures from a day in the life of farming that had an impact on me, without any explanation, and to nominate someone to take the challenge, for 10 consecutive days.

I first became aware of TAC in 2011, when my husband and I began living in Brooklyn half-time. Out walking one winter's day, I was brought up short by a series of beautiful arched windows in a restored industrial building, my attention caught because they were shiny bright in contrast with their dingy neighbors.
