Malabar Farm  Cover Image Book Book

Malabar Farm / Louis Bromfield ; with a celebratory poem by E. B. White and drawings by Kate Lord.


When Pulitzer Prize-winning author Louis Bromfield and his young family returned to America from France on the eve of World War ii, they settled down in Ohio's rural Pleasant Valley. He brought several adjacent properties and named the resulting aggregation Malabar Farm. The topsoil at Malabar Farm had been exhausted and eroded over the years, leaving the land largely unproductive, but Bromfield was determined to return it to sustainable productivity. Potent seeds were planted there. Those seeds soon took root and the plants began to thrive as he chartered a bold new course for their lives and the land, and in the process became an outspoken advocate for sustainability. -- Back cover.
