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.

Design & Knit Your Own Fair Isle Style Hat - 2-Day Workshop

Our first two-day workshop at Kortright Handworks at La Basse Cour! Julie will be leading the program, you will design and knit your own Fair Isle style hat. All materials are included, yarn from our own sheep at La Basse Cour and notions from The Sheeps' Nest in Hobart. I'll be serving farm-to-table lunches each day and dinner on Saturday evening, made with ingredients from our nearby farmer friends. We'll also take a field trip to The Sheeps' Nest and to Creative Corner Books and the Hobart Book Village. Make it a weekend or an overnight and take a room with us in our Bed & Breakfast!

To maximize your enjoyment and the enjoyment of all the participants, please be sure you can cast on, knit and purl. If you would like some help with these knitting basics in advance, Julie is happy to get you ready for the workshop.
