Malabar Farm in Pleasant Valley was the dream of the Pulitzer Prize-winning author, Louis Bromfield. Today, visitors can see the house and farm existing just as they did in Bromfield's time. The outbuildings and pastures still house chickens, goats and beef cattle. The hills are ribboned with strips of corn, wheat, oats and hay while the scenic trails are adorned with nature's bounty.
Malabar Farm reflects the agricultural tradition of Ohio while focusing on Louis Bromfield's life and philosophies.
The 32-room Big House, designed by Bromfield and architect Louis Lamoreux, is a blend of Western Reserve architectural styles and was built to appear as if it had been added onto over the years
Tours of the mansion, preserved just as Louis left it in 1956, are offered year-round
Wagon tours of the farm are offered May through October • During the growing season, Malabar Farm offers educational tours of its vegetable garden
