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

Since we were in the area, we stopped here. Didn't know it was a State Park. Beautiful property. Did some looking around & did some shopping in the gift shop....the fudge is very good & made there. We were not that impressed by the farm...but that is because we have Lake Farmpark near us, in Kirtland Ohio, and so that... More

We enjoyed the house tour at Malabar Farm--the home has quite an interesting history, and is now a well maintained state park. We are Bogie fans, so it was fun to see the photos of Bogart and Lauren Bacall along with other movie memorabilia. It was also the weekend of the Shawshank Redemption 20th Anniversary with the property as part... More

My family and I enjoyed the wagon tour of the grounds, as well as the tour of Bromfield's home. What a neat piece of history! It was beautiful there. We didn't get a chance to check out the hiking trails, but the grounds were beautiful, so I'm sure they were lovely. All the park workers were very friendly.

We had an excellent tour guide named Tom Bachelder who knew his info regarding Bogie, Bacall, and Bromfield. The tour wasn't rushed, but time seemed to fly by quickly with all the information Mr. Bachelder shared. He made the history of the home come alive. (Be sure to ask him who the famous person was who designed the wallpaper in... More
