After deep reflection, we have decided to cancel all 2020 gatherings at La Basse Cour, including events, workshops, farm tours and bed&breakfast stays. We are sad for the plans not coming to fruition as we had intended, but believe that our best response to these uncertain pandemic times is to observe a "Quiet Year" at the farm.

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. Please practice social distancing and wear your mask if you come to the farm.

You can see what we're up to by following us on Facebook, subscribing to our newsletter, and reading our blog posts.

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.

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?"

Today, May 19, is the very first World Plant a Vegetable Garden Day, launched this year by Bob Matthews of Rochester, NY. Bob is a lifelong gardener and owner and author of The Gardener's Network, Garden Hobbies, and Pumpkin Nook. World Plant a Vegetable Garden Day was created to encourage people to get out and enjoy gardening with their families and friends, and to help provide delicious and nutritious fresh vegetables for people all around the world. A home garden can help stretch our family food dollar and offers the opportunity to eat food grown without harmful chemicals. Fresh vegetables taste best and taste makes it that much easier to eat those recommended veggie servings each day.

Celebrating Earth Day, Every Day, at La Basse Cour and Kortright Handworks

Coming of age in the 1970s I was acutely aware of the degraded state of our environment and the impact that was having on people here and around the world. Thanks to Gaylord Nelson, I also began to understand the power we have as a people to create large and lasting change for the good.
