mask.jpgAfter deep reflection, we have decided to cancel all gatherings at La Basse Cour, including events, workshops, farm tours and bed&breakfast stays
until there is more certainty about Covid 19.

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.
You can see what we're up to by following us on Facebook, subscribing to our newsletter, and reading our blog posts.
Please practice social distancing and wear your mask if you come to the farm. You may read our Covid 19 Safety Plan for more information.

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.
