Marsha Mason sells farm

SANTA FE, N.M. – Actress Marsha Mason, the star of films such as “The Goodbye Girl,” is saying goodbye to farm life. Mason tells The Santa Fe New Mexican that she has finally sold her 247-acre farm in Abiquiu, N.M. The sale on the property, which had been listed for more than six years, closed Jan. 31. Despite being put on the market for $11 million, the new owners paid $6.2 million. Mason says she bought the farm in the 1990s and turned it into an operation for her medicinal-herbs business.

The Oscar-nominated actress still has a house in Santa Fe. She plans to maintain the herb business while focusing on acting.

Her recent credits include a recurring role on the ABC comedy, “The Middle,” as the mother of Patricia Heaton’s character.
