What a beautiful place to visit. We didn't get to take a tour of the farmhouse this year but plan on doing it with out next trip. Loved the greenery, horse and be able to walk around.

I attended the 40th Annual Ohio Heritage Days at Malabar Farm on September 24, my first visit to Malabar. The focus was on primitive antique stalls throughout the grounds, vintage farming equipment displays, food, and Civil War reenactments. They were well organized with trams to take you from parking to the center of the action. There was plenty to see... More

We took the farm & house tour on a weekday afternoon and enjoyed hearing the history of Malabar Farm and it's owner Louis Bromfield. Visiting the house was like stepping back in time, it looks like he had left it yesterday. Nice collections, especially the Grandma Moses paintings given to him by the artist. Did not check out any hiking... More

Very helpful and friendly staff willing to answer any and all questions in detail. The tour was excellent, the wagon tour could have more information, but I realize it is difficult to talk above the tractor. I will be back.

Lovely farm with scenic views and plenty of things for the whole family. We especially like Heritage Days and tend to go each year. The House Tour is interesting and full of small tidbits of historical information. The grounds are kept beautiful, the buildings are in great shape, and it takes you away from the city life. Highly recommend a... More

There are a few trails here but we ended up making our own. There isn’t a lot to do and it can be confusing, especially when you’re trying to find the cemetery but the map they gave us didn’t make sense. Turns out the way to reach it is between the house and the barn, through the driveway.

Visiting Malabar Farm State Park would not be on my bucket list, but it's a nice outing and Sunday drive. The wagon tour of the farm was disappointing, for it was a bumpy ride and not much excitement was going on the day we visited. I understand there are various events throughout the year that brings thousands of visitors to... More

Louis bromfield is one of my husband's favorite authors so he really enjoyed the tour of his home and learning about his farming ideals. It was a very informative tour and the grounds are beautiful. We will return.
