Jose Garces Goes Country

Photos of his farmhouse

 Family Man

Garces and his family—son Andres, mother Magdalena, daughter Olivia, wife Beatriz and amiable English bulldog Luna—gather around the Pennsylvania bluestone fire pit in the backyard.

 Lay of the Land

A stately walnut tree shades the eastern side of the farmhouse, which sits on 39 acres. The doorway pictured was the original home’s front entrance; it’s now a side door in the study. An antique water pump is a relic of the farm’s long history.



Window Dressing

Garces’s collection of well-used pots and pans creates a functional frame for the kitchen window. The wood paneling was coated in Benjamin Moore’s “Collector’s Item,” and the terra-cotta linoleum floors were replaced with slate tiles.
