Marsha Mason: From Picking Apples to the Big Apple
Four time Academy Award nominee, Emmy and Golden Globe winning actress Marsha Mason has spent the last decade of her life juggling growing herbs on an organic farm in northern New Mexico, with the demands of stage and screen.
Next month the actress opens in the off-Broadway play, A Feminine Ending by Sarah Treem. The 65 year-old actress is now looking to sell the farm (for an estimated $11 mil) to be closer to the Big Apple. Mason laments having to sell the property, but wants to simplify her life from the burdens of hands on farming. The actress, who is also a longtime advocate of alternative therapies, believes that the property would be an ideal site for a spiritual community retreat, as well as a private residence.
Although she plans to sell the farm she does plan to continue to keep a hand in the natural lifestyle sector, by continuing to operate her company Resting in the River, which makes organic and natural skin care and wellness sprays from the fields of herbs along the Rio Charma near Santa Fe.
