Love those frugal one tank trips. Today we are going to visit “Malabar Farm where Sustainable farming meets environmental, economic, and social objectives simultaneously.” A THAT’S MY WORLD TUESDAY POST
Malabar Farm State Park
4050 Bromfield Rd. Lucas,OH. is S.E. of Mansfield,Ohio and just a few short miles from interstate 71 on Pleasant Valley Rd.
Denise Vales (our very capable guide) is standing beside Mr. Bromfields restored 1946 Willys Jeep which he used for farm chores. Next a little about Mr. Bromfield:
Louis Bromfield December 27, 1896 – March 18, 1956 was an American author and conservationist who gained international recognition winning the Pulitzer Prize and pioneering innovative scientific farming concepts.One of Mansfield, Ohio's most famous natives, his home was Malabar Farm near Lucas, Ohio, from 1939 until his death in 1956. Bromfield was also friends with some of the most celebrated personalities of his era, including famous architect F. F. Schnitzer, and provided the location for Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall's wedding.CLICK to read more from Wikipedia… Let’s take a look inside:

Malabar Farm Visitors Center, Malabar Farm Restaurant, Malabar Farm Produce Stand and even an International Hostel with an ever flowing natural spring bottom right. I always like to talk a little about food: “To experience fine French Cuisine locally you need only travel outside Mansfield , Ohio to Malabar Farm in Lucas. Enjoy our signature Chicken Caesar Salade and a cup of Forest Mushroom Soupe, hand cut Steaks or Blackened Salmon.” CLICK on above link to read more.
