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.

Salon de Montmartre Art Show and Sell in The Carriage House at La Basse Cour

Our next salon in our Carriage House, bringing together our diverse community and spotlighting select local and regional artists.

Free admission, with no fees and no commissions, Salon de Montmartre is our contribution to celebrating the artful life.

A salon is a gathering, often featuring art. We chose to evoke Montmartre, one of the most famous districts in Paris, which is set atop a small hill. Artists and artisans along with those who appreciate them have made Montmartre a melting pot of inspiration and we hope to do the same. Au creux de vallon is our wordplay since our farm sits in a hollow beneath a small hill. We think you will agree that our carriage house is the perfect spot to host a salon in this beautiful valley we call home.
