Early Conservation Farming In Richland County Ohio Malabar Farm

Ginnie BakerThis area of Ohio, Richland County, has so much to offer. We have activities for all seasons from golf, swimming and boating to skiing.

But it also has some of the most beautiful scenery and farms in the state.

It’s the perfect place for someone like me to do natural and organic gardening.

Mansfield is in the heart of Richland County and is the birthplace of famous author and conservationist, Louis Bromfield. He lived on beautiful Malabar Farm for years.

The breath-taking Big House at the farm was the site of the wedding of Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall, close friends of Bromfield’s.

Ginnie, Louis Bromfield sounds like a great author from a great area of our country. I'm not aware of any great authors from Nebraska. With the advent of the Internet, many more people have been turning to writing but more for pleasure than monetary means. My mother was a prolific letter writer and had well over 100 penpals world wide. Both my sister and I inherited some of her writing skills. Mom's letter writing was more of a journal of events that happened in her everyday life. My sister is some what the same. Mine is in the blogging world and is more about the adventures of life and gardening. ***** Have a great conservation farming day.
