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.

Musical Moments in the Carriage House with TOOTS

toots.jpgGather for an evening of music with TOOTS in The Carriage House at La Basse Cour on Monday, July 20 from 6:30-9pm, as part of our Musical Moments series.   

“Toots”, Dick Vollkommer and Jill Tannone, have been making music together for 2 years. They met singing in an A Cappella doo wop group for 10 years. After this group dis banded they decided to try their hand at making music as a duo. Jill sings and Dick plays guitar and sings. He had the first Rock n’ Roll group in the Delaware County area in the 60’s. !cid_C28C9257-B7C3-495C-8A20-68C47CF8E70B-L0-001.jpg“Toots” has an eclectic range of covers from Radiohead, Leonard Cohen, Blondie, Amy Winehouse, George Harrison and many more. They enjoy making a version of any song that ‘speaks’ to them.

Musical Moments happen on select Monday evenings through the summer and fall featuring local players in an intimate setting on our farm La Basse Cour. They are pot luck & BYOBs, so bring a dish and a drink to share with friends and neighbors beginning at 6:30pm; music starts at 7:30. Free and open to the public, with a tip jar for our musicians.
