SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — 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 (http://bit.ly/MCxO3D) 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.
