Malabar Farm State Park Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"This is one of the most interesting and unusual state parks you will ever come across. You can do the usual stuff here, like hike, fish, and swim. But this is also a working farm. It was created by Pulitzer Prize–winning author Louis Bromfield in the first half of the twentieth century and, after his death and as was his wish, became a state park in 1976. Today, visitors can explore that history firsthand. The farm still raises chickens, goats, and beef cattle. You can enjoy some of the benefits of the farm—the roadside stand that’s been in operation since 1952 still sells produce from Memorial Day weekend through Oct—by taking guided wagon tours of the farm and its gardens or visiting the petting barn."
