A PHOTOGRAPHER’S FOCUS –
STONEGATE FARM WITH MATTHEW BENSON
“Stonegate Farm: An Original 19th Century New York Hudson Valley Estate” is a category-defying program hosted by organic food and flower farmer, designer, and photographer Matthew Benson.
Witness Stonegate Farm as Matthew unveils each photographically stunning garden room from flowers to farm to orchard. With a keen eye for color, form, and function, Matthew correlates farming like a gardener, blending beauty with function and balancing creativity with problem-solving. Filmed during autumn of 2020, the sustainable 21st Century farm boasts a colorful bounty of flowers, vegetables, and fruit not only for Matthew but the CSA (Community-Supported Agriculture) that supports his neighboring community.
Both an award-winning writer and photographer, Matthew demonstrates how he uses light creating his own personal narrative for each photo he frames as he walks us past his fenced climbing vegetables, tree allée orchard, and harmonious hornbeam hedges. Matthew’s creative nature should entice us all to follow his lead as we begin to design our own gardens.
