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.

Summer begins at La Basse Cour.

Although you'll find me often at La Basse Cour, my official "studio hours" for this season are Fridays 10 to 2 p.m. What do I mean by that, and how are those hours different than others that I spend at the farm?

This season when you visit my space you see that I am now selling under two labels: Jules Wrenne and Kortright Handworks@La Basse Cour. I expect I will be asked more than once to explain the difference between one basket and the other. The answer is engendered in the question I am most often asked at fairs and markets: "Where do you get your yarn?"
