Malabar Farm Foundation

The Malabar Farm Foundation was founded in 1993 to provide resources in support of the vision and programming of Malabar Farm State Park.  In addition, the Foundation preserves, educates, promotes and extends the legacy of Louis Bromfield in the fields of agriculture, conservation and literature.  The Louis Bromfield Society is the membership program established to raise funds in support of this mission.

Donations to the Foundation have helped to fund many projects at Malabar Farm State Park, including two nationally televised PBS documentaries, over $500,000 toward the construction of the Visitor / Education Center, funding for educational exhibits, house and artifact restoration, and the creation and maintenance of our website,
