Malabar Farm State Park
HISTORIC LANDMARK SINCE 1939
So much rich history here, just miles from Mohican Lodge! Malabar Farm State Park offers a variety of activities, including tours of the big house, hiking, wagon tours, and a program of special events in the rich, green surroundings so beloved by Bromfield. Amenities include a youth hostel, primitive campground, horse camp, an onsite, award winning restaurant, and picnic grounds. The park, however, aspires to a larger educational function as well. It already maintains a working farm (on a smaller scale than of old, lacking Bromfield's lavish staff), exhibits on grass farming, interpretive programs, and a twenty-five-hundred-volume library on sustainable agriculture.
