Meeting Martha Stewart
Category: Presenting "The Curious Gardener"
Last week I visited Martha Stewart’s estate (aka ‘farm’) in Katonah, NY, just 30 minutes from where I live. My garden club had arranged a special tour by Martha’s head gardener, Ryan McCallister, and Martha herself was our host for tea on the terrace and a question-and-answer session in her vegetable garden.
I found her to be a friendly and hospitable host, and it was fun to see her gardens, her greenhouse and her collection of animals (dogs, horses and donkeys). As a woman business owner, I admire her for the business and lifestyle she has created. I had a chance to thank her for the nice things she and her colleagues have said and written about Womanswork products over the years. Most recently Womanswork was named a Design Finalist in her American Made program.
Here are some images I took of her farm with my iphone.

Have you visited P. Allen Smith’s garden/farm? Your products are naturals for his fans.
Hi Barbara, I have seen photos of his garden in magazines and on instagram, but never in person! It looks really beautiful. –Dorian
Wow! It must have been a supreme experience to visit the house and garden of most women’s role model!
What was the feeling to be there, chatting with her and exploring this heavenly place?
Curious about how they avoid grass clippings from flying into the flower beds. Do they use motorless lawn mower?
I live in P.Allen Smith’s state of AR. Things are not always as they appear on the surface. His name is a big trigger for many.
That’s all I’ll say and that I absolutely love this website.
Thank you for sharing your experience to Martha’s farm.
What a fun report, love Martha Stewart & Womanswork! Thank you- makes me appreciate my Miss Kim lilacs.
