  • Nice Ohio farm with good message for recycling and sustainability for the youngsters, but the Bromfield connection is not terribly compelling unless you are already a fan. The on-site windmill is laughably undersized and ineffective for its 80-foot pedestal, not to mention the 900-acre site. It's rolling acres will remind you of the scores of working farms that you viewed along the roads that lead there. Yawn.
  • Restaurant wonderful, best dinning experience...we were married at Mt. Jeez...I go every Monday for the best water around...so thankful for this beautiful park n restaurant...thank you. We spend every anniversary at Malabar restaurant. Very very satisfied.
  • This is always a lovely place to visit! We go each year for the Heritage festival. The ham from their smoker is delicious! Lots of walking trails, nice visitor center. The maple syrup festival is also a lot of fun!
  • Fun! Working farm, bird sanctuary. Gift shop too. Great old house tour for small fee.
  • Malabar Farm State Park is the former home of Louis Bromfield. For years it served as a place for Bromfield to write, entertain the Hollywood elite of the time, and demonstrate his ideas about farming. Today visitors can tour the house and grounds, catching a glimpse of what life was like for Bromfield and his friends. Throughout the year Malabar Farm holds festivals, such as Heritage Days, that bring to life what like was like in the early 20th century.
