I visited here when I was younger, but I don't remember any of the information of the past that we got today. We enjoyed our tractor tour and the tour of the house, our guide had lots of history to share. If your bored at home take a trip to Malabar Farms. Tractor tour is only $2 pp and house... More

Fantastic rural setting. State park with a very unusual history. A fantastic restaurant, Malabar Inn a mile away.

Went there not expecting much, but was pleasantly surprised. Took the big house tour, and hiked some of the trails. Very interesting. Make sure to drive up Mt. Jeez as the view is tremendous.

Visited recently with my mom and really enjoyed the house tour--great value! Our guide was personable and knowledgable, and we left with so much new information regarding Louis Bromfield's life.

Malabar Farm has always been such a fixture in my life. My parents brought me there often, and when I married I introduced it to my husband and my four children. Nature trails are peaceful and picturesque. We especially love Heritage Days, which is held in September each year. It's truly a step back in time. Plus, it's free! We... More

We have been frequent visitors here over the years even though it is over a two hour drive from our home. First, the setting is beautiful in the rolling hills of central Ohio. The park, which is the former farm of Louis Bromfield, is very well maintained as a farm with cows, goats, and chickens. Our most recent visit was... More

Nothing to dislike. Hours and days of tours are limited from September through April. We were aware before we went that the Farm was not open for tours when we went, but did enjoy walking around the property and viewing the barns, grounds and home from the outside. It was beautiful and we will definitely make the effort to return... More

It had been years since I went to Malabar Farms, so last Sunday we went. The weather was beautiful and the drive is spectacular. We went on both tours (the house and the farm). The "combo ticket" is only $5. I would have paid more. The house is amazing and the tour guide was great. In case you don't know... More

Malabar farm is an excellent park with lots of different activities. Of course you need to do the farm and house tour, but don't forget that there are trails and other things to experience. Be sure to check out the Butternut trail towards the south of the park where you can see Pugh cabin which is featured in the Shawshank... More
